Herb and Joan Young Field (Softball)

 


Herb and Joan Young Field is home to the Rider softball team and is located to the rear of campus just past the track and field complex. In 2007 enhancements were made to the field and includes a press box, stadium seating, irrigation system, new fencing and backstop.

The field is named after Herb and Joan Young in honor of their generous contribution to the renovations of the softball field as well as their outstanding support of Rider Athletics over the years. Herb and Joan Young are both Rider graduates from the class of 1950. Herb is a past president of the Rider Alumni Association and is a current member of the Rider Athletics Hall of Fame committee.
