Davenport Field at Disharoon Park

First opened on Feb. 16, 2002, Ted Davenport Field at Disharoon Park is one of the premier college baseball facilities in the country. The stadium features a seating capacity of 5,919 (third largest on-campus stadium in the ACC and field dimensions of 332-370-404-372-332 (left-right).

The ballpark includes a canopied grandstand with nearly 3,000 chairback seats encircling the playing surface, left field bleacher seats, grass hillside seating down the left-field line, 140 permanent field level seats equipped with a lounge and seven suites available for lease by fans and corporate sponsors.

The $1 million Bermuda grass playing surface was installed during the summer of 2012 and features a state-of-the-art irrigation/drainage system, sand-based field, a FieldTurf collar behind home plate and synthetic warning track in foul territory.

The playing surface – known as Davenport Field – was dedicated on April 13, 2002 and named in honor of Thomas “Ted” Edward Davenport who served the University of Virginia as Executive Director and Secretary/Treasurer of the Virginia Student Aid Foundation (VSAF) from 1958 until 1988. He was a dear friend and avid fan of the University until his death in 2001. A 1953 graduate of the Curry School of Education, Davenport was instrumental in increasing the donations and donors to the annual fund and leading capital funding efforts for the athletics program during his tenure. He served the University in several capacities including head baseball coach and head golf coach.

In 2018, a generous commitment was made by an anonymous donor to name the Virginia baseball stadium Disaharoon Park in honor of Leslie B. Disharoon and Ann Merriwether Disharoon. Les and Ann are well-known as long-time and generous supporters of the baseball program. Mrs. Disharoon, who passed away in 2013, was an enthusiastic Virginia baseball fan. Mr. Disharoon remained an active supporter until his passing during the 2023 season. He has served as a member of the Virginia Athletics Foundation Board of Trustees, as well as on the boards of various other institutions and foundations.

The spacious clubhouse is furnished with wooden lockers, a lounge area, team meeting and video rooms and kitchen as well as expansive training room and coaches’ locker room/lounge. The climate-controlled player development center includes the Ryan Zimmerman indoor hitting cages and an indoor pitching lab. In addition, players can train at the stadium inside the Chris Taylor Performance Center with the latest equipment and cardiovascular technology.
