Centennial Field

Historic Centennial Field


Centennial Field is the name of two sports facilities at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont. One is used for baseball, while the other was used for UVM football, soccer and lacrosse. The baseball field is also the home of the Vermont Lake Monsters minor league baseball team.

Located on the University of Vermont campus, the first baseball field was built on the site in 1904. It officially opened on April 17, 1906 with UVM's 10-4 victory over the University of Maine. It was part of the sports complex constructed as part of the UVM Centennial celebration. The current concrete and steel main grandstand was erected in 1922, to replace the original wooden bleachers which had burned in 1913. It seats 4,000 for baseball.

. Over the last century, Centennial Field has been home to many players who advanced to the major leagues from collegiate and minor league baseball. Among the greats to call the ballpark home include Larry Gardner, Ray Collins, Ralph Lapointe, Kirk McCaskill, Barry Larkin, Jeff Montgomery, Rob Dibble, Chris Sabo, Lenny Harris, Norm Charlton, Ken Griffey, Jr., Omar Vizquel, Orlando Cabrera, Jason Bay, Jordan Zimmermann and John Lannan.
