St. Laurence’s baseball field was completed in the summer of 2008. The newly renovated Viking Field served as the Regional host in 2009, 2011, and 2014 and the IHSA Sectional host in 2010. The field features many new additions as well as some unique features, making it the one best high school baseball stadiums in the state of Illinois.
The additions include 40 foot in-ground dugouts with storage under the benches and individual shelving space.
The home side has 2 turfed batting cages and 3 bullpens down the line.
A brick backstop and netting system provides the look of a major league baseball stadium.
A completely new playing surface on the infield and outfield was installed. Both have been constructed with drain tile to ensure maximum drainage.
A 2 story press box, which features a concession stand, baseball storage and a press room sit behind the backstop.
From the press room, the St. Laurence Media Club announces and broadcasts each home game over the internet. The broadcasts include live game feeds, pre-and post game interviews as well as archived games of the entire season.
This beautiful new field can be viewed from the top of the “baseball berm,” a 14 foot high grass hill, spanning the outfield from left to centerfield.
Atop the berm sits a gigantic state of the art 9-inning scoreboard. The scoreboard features a message center for displaying player and team information.
The baseball field is part of the recent renovations to the entire St. Laurence athletic complex which includes a brand new synthetic turf football field.
