Paul Merkel Field

Paul Merkel Field

Merkel Field: Located across from the back of the Fieldhouse, Merkel Field is home to the Whitworth baseball team. A beautiful setting for a sunny spring day of baseball, the facility has undergone several recent upgrades. Bleachers have been added and reconstructed to include seats immediately behind home plate. The backstop has been moved back away from home plate to provide a safer amount of foul territory. And a full-service press box is now in use.
