Workman Family Softball Field

Millikin University, Decatur, Illinois

After three decades without a home for the women's softball program, Millikin University's dreams became a reality through a generous donation. The new Workman Family Softball Field is a monument to Millikin's strong heritage and the bright future of a growing program. Because Millikin's campus is rich with spaces and facilities that invoke a feeling of campus pride, history, and elegance, the facility associated with the softball field needed to do the same.

  • ​Professional Style 'Sunken' Dugouts
  • Synthetic Turf Infield and Outfield
  • Team Room
  • Vinyl Fencing
  • Berm Seating
  • Patio Seating
  • Stadium Chair Seating
The Challenge

The design team was tasked with the challenge of creating a Division III softball field to provide the best softball experience in the CCIW conference.

The Solution

Every part of the field is dedicated to an exceptional student-athlete experience, one that is highly sought after by recruits and provides a special atmosphere for all players. The facility also engages the sports fan, providing an up-close experience with unique viewing and seating options.
