The Ohio Softball Field is one of the finest intercollegiate softball facilities in the region, with a state-of-the-art playing surface and drainage system.
Completed during the spring of 1999, the field stands alongside Bob Wren Stadium as just one of the venues that make up the Ohio Athletics Mall. Included among the amenities of the stadium are bullpens behind both the home and visitor sunken dugouts and a covered batting cage between the baseball and softball fields.
On April 2, 1999, the Bobcats swept a doubleheader (6-5, 6-4) from conference-rival Miami in the inaugural event held at the Ohio Softball Field. Ohio went on to win seven straight contests at the new facility before suffering a 9-2 defeat in the second game of a doubleheader against Kent State on April 9.
A 14-6 record at the facility in 1999 began a six-year run of success for the program at its new home, as the Bobcats have compiled a 69-45-1 record in Athens since that opening victory. Ohio completed the 2002 season with an all-time best 15-4 mark at the complex while the 9-2 record in 2004 constituted the program's highest winning percentage (.818) at home.
In the summer of 2003, a new digital scoreboard was installed with more renovations being planned for the future. Included in those are a covered press box, permanent stadium bleachers and a state-of-the-art sound system. Much of the renovations will mirror the design and concepts behind Bob Wren Stadium.
