FAIRFIELD, CT - The Sacred Heart University softball team will defend its 2011 Northeast Conference title in the University’s new state-of-the-art facility this year. Renovations for the new Pioneer Park began days after the groundbreaking ceremony, which was held on November 13, 2011. The new stadium boasts stadium-style seating with cup holders, a new press box, locker rooms connected to both dugouts, a bullpen and batting cages along each foul line.

“We are grateful for the University’s commitment to the softball program,” said Elizabeth Luckie, co-head coach of softball, who is in her 24th season. “To add to the already top-notch features, our locker room will have a TV, showers and couches. Our coaching staff agrees that it will be one of the nicest softball stadiums in the NEC.

The pioneers, who are currently 12-19, are scheduled to play their first game in the stadium on April 18 against Yale University.

Fourth-year shortstop and senior captain Alyssa Garza can hardly wait to play there. “I am more than ecstatic about this wonderful opportunity. I wish I had more years left to play in Pioneer Park, but I look forward to the expectations and pressure of performing well in our new home. We are taught that pressure is a privilege, and I hope that we can embrace the pressure and perform at a high level in the stadium.”
