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 included new seats behind home plate and the expansion of seating down the first base line, construction of a new home dugout, installation of a 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.
Satow Stadium will be dedicated in a special ceremony at noon on Homecoming Day, Saturday, October 23, prior to the annual Homecoming football game at 1:30 p.m. against Dartmouth.
The link to the photo album is below will take fans through a brief tour of the facility as it appeared on a beautiful autumn day in October.
