Centennial Field

 

Named to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the University of Vermont's first graduating class, Centennial Field has been the 

home of UVM athletics since 1906.  The three ballparks that have stood on this site have hosted semi- professional and minor 

league baseball, as well as exhibitions by visiting Major League and Negro League ballclubs. The current grandstand, constructed in

1922, is one of the oldest still in use.  Among the outstanding players who have graced Centennial's diamond are Larry Gardner,

Ray Collins, Tris Speaker, Jesse Hubbard, Robin Roberts, Kirk McCaskill, Barry Larkin and Ken Griffey, Jr.
