Captains Park

With the first pitch thrown on March 1, 2005, Christopher Newport entered a new era in its women’s softball history. The opening of Captains Park gave the extremely successful program a fitting home, one of the finest in the region.The state-of-the-art stadium includes a playing surface second to none, with drainage capabilities that will make rainouts a rare occurrence. There are also bull pens adjacent to each dugout and a section of comfortable, major league stadium type, chairback seating directly behind home plate. The stadium is part of CNU’s outstanding outdoor sports complex that includes a 4,300-seat football stadium plus top level venues for soccer, baseball, field hockey, lacrosse and tennis. There are also practice facilities for the sports within the complex.
