The baseball stadium at Lou Brock features permanent, bleacher seating for 700 spectators. These seats wrap around the foul territory behind home plate. The adjacent softball field features seating for around 300 spectators behind homeplate.[7] a Clubhouse is located down the right field line of the baseball field and contains space for a variety of functions for the team and includes the team's locker room.
