Jay Bergman Field

Jay Bergman Field is a baseball stadium located on the main campus of the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Florida, USA. The stadium serves as the home of the UCF Knights baseball team.

History

Jay Bergman field was originally built in 2001 as a state of the art facility, featuring an indoor training facility with three batting cages and two pitching mounds. The facility was named after the former head coach of the team, Jay Bergman. However, UCF relieved Jay Bergman of his duties on May 1, 2008 for alleged harassment towards an equipment manager. It is unknown whether UCF plans to retain Jay Bergman's name on the stadium for the long term.

Within the last few years, Jay Bergman Field has been expanded from 1,980 seats to 2,230. In addition, 1,000 fans can be accommodated on grass berms located along the first and third base lines as well as beyond the outfield fence. Further renovations are planned in the next few years, which will bring seating to a total capacity at 4,180. The facility's record attendance of 3,601 was set during an April 2011 game, in which the Knights upset the No. 5 Florida Gators.

Since moving into Jay Bergman Field in 2001, the Knights own a 222–123 (.643) record.
