SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego's newest athletic facility, Fowler Park and Cunningham Field, is currently under construction and fans can now watch a live webstream of the construction process by clicking here.
The University of San Diego's athletics program has enjoyed a significant measure of success, which includes being the recipient of five consecutive West Coast Conference Commissioner's Cup awards for overall athletics excellence.
On Jan. 28, USD President Mary E. Lyons, PhD, Executive Director of Athletics Ky Snyder and USD Board of Trustees Chairman Ron Fowler publicly addressed the start of a new quest for athletics excellence.
Called the Drive for Torero Success, this $30 million USD campaign involves a master plan to renovate the USD baseball facility, construct a golf/softball/club sports facility, renovating the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center and providing operational and scholarship endowments.
The field itself will be named in honor of our former coach, John Cunningham, who is still a major part of USD Athletics and is currently in his 50th year with the program. Fowler Park will be adding lights, a clubhouse, office space and suites to the venue. Cunningham field will be reconstructed and rotated so that the dimensions more closely resemble those at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, the host of the College World Series.
Populous, the architecture firm for Fowler Park, created a new Spanish Renaissance-style entry plaza that connects the ballpark with nearby campus architecture. Five levels were created to incorporate necessary programmatic elements - an entry level with plaza space, a suite and plaza level, the main concourse, the Torero Zone and the team clubhouse. The clubhouse will feature ample space for coaches and student-athletes, a training room, equipment room, player lounge, expanded locker rooms, a display and reception area and added space for batting cages. Additionally, Fowler Park will feature a new batter's eye in centerfield and added field lighting.
