Stadium

Main article: Klein Field at Sunken Diamond

Klein Field at Sunken Diamond is one of the premier collegiate baseball stadiums in the country.[citation needed] When the football stadium was originally built in 1921, dirt was excavated from the site of the future baseball stadium, which created a "sunken" field a decade later.
