Hawkins Field serves as the home of the Vanderbilt Commodores and with recently completed facilities it stands as one of the top college baseball parks in the country.

A 4.5 million dollar project to add on to Hawkins Field was completed in the Spring of 2006. Phase Two saw the addition of over 475 new stadium seats along the baselines.
