Left field wall

In fall 2007, the school heightened the field's left field wall to prevent home run balls from breaking the windows of buildings over the fence. The chain link was painted green in homage to the Green Monster at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, home of Major League Baseball's Boston Red Sox. The Green Monster, which is also green, is the left field fence at Fenway. A new batting cage was constructed at the same time as the wall, and both improvements were part of a campus-wide construction project.

Dugouts

In fall 2012, the field's dugouts were lengthened and upgraded.
