What started as a lofty vision is now considered one of the finest college baseball stadiums in the country.
Northwestern University held a dedication ceremony for the newly renovated Rocky and Berenice Miller Park Sunday, April 3, during Northwestern baseball’s opening weekend.
“Today is a remarkable day for Northwestern baseball,” Vice President for Athletics and Recreation Jim Phillips told a crowd of nearly 150 members of the Wildcats family, calling the new ballpark “an absolute game changer.”
Rocky and Berenice Miller Park and many of its featured amenities are named in honor of Northwestern baseball’s best supporters and other distinguished members of the Northwestern community.
Speaking on behalf of his teammates, senior pitcher Jake Stolley ’16 shared his gratitude for the program’s benefactors at the dedication ceremony. “It’s such a humbling opportunity to call this new venue home,” Stolley said. “It’s going to make a profound impact on our program. We’re forever grateful.”
Phillips added, “We are humbled by the leadership of so many throughout the journey to realize this vision and thrilled for the opportunity to celebrate this historic weekend with all who have made this project a reality.”
