Looking to make a road trip to escape the dead of winter or planning to hit the road this spring? Here’s 10 great places to take in a college baseball game:

Eddy D. Field Stadium | Pepperdine

Pepperdine Athletics

Located just off the Pacific Coast Highway, Pepperdine’s Eddy D. Field Stadium offers one of the best scenic views in all of college baseball. 

Opened in 1973, the Waves’ Malibu ballpark sits 1,800 fans who have a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and palm trees in the outfield backdrop. Pepperdine has a rich history of success including a national championship in 1992 and 18 West Coast Conference championships since it began playing at Eddy D. Field.

Nothing beats the beach and baseball in the spring and summer, so what better way to combine the two by spending the day at any of the Malibu beaches and catching a game at night?

Smith’s Ballpark | Utah

Utah Athletics

Much like Eddy D. Field Stadium, Utah’s Smith’s Ballpark also offers a breathtaking backdrop. Located in downtown Salt Lake City, the Utes’ stadium home stadium sits at the base of the 11,000-foot peaks of the Wasatch Mountain Range.

Smith’s Ballpark holds 14,511 with stands stretching down to the outfield on both the first-base and third-base line with suite levels offering one of the best views in college baseball. Utah set its single-game attendance record in 2016 on the final day of the regular season when it clinched the Pac-12 championship.

In addition to hosting the Utes, Smith’s Ballpark also serves as the home park for the Salt Lake Bees, who are the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 

Goodwin Field | Cal State Fullerton

Cal State Fullerton Athletics

Not only does Cal State Fullerton have one of the best teams in college baseball year in and year out, Goodwin Field offers good food in addition to good baseball. 

According to StadiumJourney.com, Goodwin Field offers one of the most diverse food spreads for any college stadium in the sport. In addition to the traditional ballpark staples, entrees such as pulled pork quesadillas and Barcelona Paella Bowls are served. Make sure to save some room for dessert, too, as you can dig into deep-fried Oreos, funnel cake, churros and various smoothies.

Goodwin Field opened in 1992 has seen numerous renovations and currently holds 3,500 people.

Eck Stadium at Tyler Field | Wichita State 

Wichita State Athletics

While Wichita State recently became a national name because of its basketball team’s success, Shockers baseball was a powerhouse and a regular in the NCAA tournament almost every season from 1980-2010. 

Eck Stadium, which opened in 1985, has a capacity of 7,851 with chairback seats behind home plate and down both the first- and third-base foul lines. Since then, the ballpark has seen some incredible upgrades with the installation of AstroTurf as well as the additions of the Bledsoe Plaza, Plaza, All-American Club and Coleman Hill.
