TIME WARNER CABLE STADIUM
Beginning with 2004 season, Time Warner Cable Stadium has been home to Dayton baseball and is among the best baseball facilities in the Midwest because of the support of Time Warner Cable.
Dayton began play at the field in 2004 and won 11 games at their new home next to UD Arena along I-75. Construction was completed on the complex before the 2005 season and Time Warner Cable Stadium was dedicated on May 7, 2005. The Flyers finished with an 18-4 record at TWC Stadium that season.
"Your recruiting tools used to be ranked as the University, scholarship dollars and your facilities," Head Coach Tony Vittorio said. "This day and age young people are so visual. Now they go away from the University with what they see instead of what they hear. What they see at UD is an outstanding baseball facility from right field to left field and from the parking lot to the stadium."
Flyer Faithful will benefit from a $4 million facility complete with a press box, covered chair back seating behind home plate, concessions and restrooms.
"It is very humbling for our baseball team to have one of the best facilities in the Midwest as well as the best facility in the Atlantic 10," Vittorio said. "The great thing about it is that our players were able to see it go up from the ground level. You could see in their eyes the amount of pride that they have in the facility."
The team also takes advantage of an indoor hitting/pitching facility with team rooms located along the right field line that can be used throughout the year.
"The most important thing about this facility is that it allows our players the ability to develop at a greater pace," Vittorio said. "Player development is the core of our program and the key to our success."
