Satow Stadium, named in recognition of the generosity of 2010 Varsity C Athletics Alumni Award recipient Phillip M. Satow ’63CC, upgrades the Columbia baseball venue into one of the best in the Ivy League, if not the Northeast. The project includes new seats behind home plate and the expansion of seating down the first base line, construction of a new home (Columbia) dugout, installation of a new multimedia scoreboard and a new press box.
This is the second renovation of Columbia’s baseball facility in the last three years. In 2007, upgrades to the field were launched due to the leadership gift of Hal Robertson ’81SEAS. Thanks to Robertson’s generous gift, the playing surface was upgraded to FieldTurf, allowing the Lions to practice and play outside more often in February and March. Additional improvements were made prior to the 2008 season, including the upgrading of the dugouts and seating behind the home plate area.
