FACILITIES

Eck Stadium at Wichita State University

When baseball was revived at Wichita State, Shocker Field was constructed in an empty grass lot along 21st Street on the east edge of campus.  The Shockers’ home boasted an AstroTurf infield, a chain-link fence and a modern electronic scoreboard with message capabilities, but little else.

Over the years, many improvements have been made to Eck Stadium – Home of Tyler Field.
Most recently, Phase V of stadium renovations was completed in February 2020. The fifth phase includes a new 10,000-square foot performance facility that features a strength and conditioning center, two athletic training rooms, student-athlete locker room, coaches locker room, media room, refueling station, classroom, offices for coaches and staff, equipment and laundry room and a ticket office. It also includes a new Shocker dugout on the third base side. The project was completely funded through donor contributions and the construction contract was through the WSU Foundation.
A new, state-of-the-art Major Play artificial turf surface was installed on Tyler Field in the fall of 2019, replacing the old AstroTurf surface that had been at the stadium since 2009.
Phase IV, completed in 2000, included the additions of the Southwestern Bell Press Box, Coleman Hill, Hap Bledsoe Plaza, skyboxes and the Virginia H. Farah All-American Club.
Wichita State University, with help from various private contributions, opened Shocker field late in the 1978 season. The facility housed little more than a playing surface and a scoreboard, and seating was not available until 1979. In 1981, the 36 members of the Home Run Club helped fund the construction of concrete dugouts.
