In the fall of 2012, Sewanee began a fundraising effort to renew Montgomery Field, a three-phase project that, when complete, will give baseball players a safe, competitive facility and will significantly upgrade the experience of spectators. A season later, Sewanee has completed the upgrade of the playing surface with a warning track and a seamless transition from infield to outfield. The project also included a first-ever irrigation system to keep the playing surface well conditioned. New black vinyl fencing completed the on-field improvements. The final phase of the project is the construction of a grandstand and a pavilion with a concession stand, restrooms, and picnic areas to provide comfortable and safe seating as well as important amenities for spectators. This phase is expected to be complete by the spring of 2014.
