Baggett Stadium

Home to Cal Poly Baseball, Baggett Stadium is widely considered one of America’s finest collegiate baseball complexes. Named in honor of All-CCAA catcher and Cal Poly Hall of Fame Alumnus Robin Baggett, the stadium is located on the north side of the campus overlooking the central core of the University. Under frequent crystal clear blue skies and cooled by the balmy breezes emanating from the nearby Pacific Ocean, the stadium is framed by the scenic coastal hills and mountains for which the Central Coast of California is well known.

At the stadium’s plaza entrance, a bronze statue of former Mustang great and Baseball Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith greets visitors and guests. The plaza then leads to the heart of Baggett Stadium with its 745 chairback seats, seating for 1,734 overall, home clubhouse and batting cages, press box, and bullpen areas.

335 feet down the left and right field lines, 405 feet to straightaway center, 385 feet in the power alleys

Bob Janssen Field

Home to Cal Poly Softball, Bob Janssen Field is the beautiful sister facility to Baggett Stadium. Named in honor of area patron and sports enthusiast Bob Janssen, the stadium is located on the north side of the campus and faces southwest toward the Pacific Ocean and famed Bishop’s Peak. Known as a pitcher’s ballpark, sun drenched fans and players alike quickly learn that the occasional breezes off the Pacific Ocean can stop a potential home run shot in its tracks or wreak havoc with casual fly balls.

Sharing a common plaza entrance with Baggett Stadium, Bob Janssen Field is beautifully landscaped and maintained as a wonderfully comfortable venue with its 400 chairback seats, seating capacity for 800, tower lighting for night games, as well as a spacious home clubhouse along with batting cages and bullpen areas for home and away teams.
