Frank Sancet Field

Frank Sancet Field, home to Wildcat baseball since 1966, is located at the corner of National Champions Drive and Enke Drive. Modernization of the 9,000 seat facility was completed for the 1975 season. Originally called Wildcat Field, the park was officially dedicated Frank Sancet Field on April 19, 1986, in honor of Arizona's longtime head coach. The spacious playing field carries a distance of 360 feet down each foul line, 378 feet to the power alleys and 400 feet to center field. A 12-foot fence comes in to left and right center before giving way to a six-foot fence across the center field area. Eight poles of light provide a well-illuminated field for evening games. In 1995, Sancet got its own Green Monster with the installation of a wall designed to block traffic lights during night games. Sancet Field has proven to be quite a home field advantage for the Cats, as Arizona has posted a 32-year win-loss record of 820-343-3 (.705) in more than 1,100 games. The UA has had just three losing records at Sancet Field and nearly reached perfection in 1974 with a 37-1 home campaign. The stadium has also been the site of four NCAA Regionals (1979, '80, '89 and '92).
