    Bart Kaufman Field

    In August, 2011, the IU Board of Trustees officially approved construction of a new baseball and softball complex — located on the north edge of the IU Bloomington athletics campus near the 45/46 Bypass (Read announcement.). The new $19.8 million complex replaces Sembower Field and the IU Softball Field (located on Fee Lane). Construction began in the spring of 2012 and was completed prior to the 2013 baseball and softball season.

    In February, 2012, Indiana University Athletics announced that the name its new baseball facility would be Bart Kaufman Field in honor of a major gift to IU Athletics from Bart Kaufman, a former IU baseball student-athlete and chairman and CEO of Indianapolis-area Kaufman Financial Corp. Read more about this announcement.
