Springfield College and Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation Partner to Create One-of-a-kind Adaptive Field


Springfield College and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation partnered to create an intercollegiate adaptive baseball field, to be enjoyed by athletes of all abilities. 

This field, referred to as the "Springfield Model" by the foundation, is the first of its kind and includes an artificial turf field, bullpens, batting cages, a new grandstand, a new scoreboard, and sound system that serves both the adaptive and the Springfield College team fields.

This project aligns closely with the missions of both Springfield College and the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, which share a dedication to improving the lives of others.

"We understand at Springfield College that learning happens inside the classroom and on the field," said Springfield College President Mary-Beth A. Cooper, PhD, DM.
