latest jewel among Notre Dame's ever-expanding athletic facilities. Located
on the campus' southeast corner, Eck Stadium has become a favorite with the
Irish as Notre Dame posted a 126-27 home mark (for an .824 winning

Plans to build the stadium were announced on June 7, 1991, thanks

have one of the finest home fields in college baseball."
