The Hill School Facilites

The Hill’s varsity softball diamond is located near the entrance to the Far Fields, just above the Beech Street tennis courts and the varsity baseball diamond.  In 2014, the field was renovated and renamed Jim Long Field in memory of former varsity softball coach Jim Long.  The renovations added fully enclosed dugouts for both Hill and the visiting teams, as well as an electronic scoreboard in right field.  Jim Long Field also has an outfield fence, bullpen areas for each team, and an enclosed hitting tunnel.
