The Hofstra University Pride play and practice at the Hofstra Softball Stadium, located on the North Campus of Hofstra University. The Softball Stadium is located next to the Mack Sports Complex and across from the Hofstra Recreation Center.
The Stadium, constructed in 2000, provides a fine setting for collegiate softball action. Construction included sunken dugouts, outfield sod, a press box on top of the bleachers behind home plate, batting cages next to the dugouts and a bullpen area. Bleacher seating behind home plate, from dugout to dugout, accommodates nearly 1,000 spectators. Field dimensions are 190 feet down the lines and 220 feet to centerfield. Banners commemorating Hofstra's team achievements are displayed on the outfield fences, while plaques mounted to the facade of the Stadium showcase individual awards won by Hofstra Softball student-athletes.
Hofstra Softball Stadium has hosted five Colonial Athletic Association Championships, as well as NCAA Regionals in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and is also the site of the Catholic League High School Softball Championship. One of the finest softball facilities in the metropolitan area, Hofstra's Softball Stadium was also home to the New York Juggernaut of the National Pro Fastpicth League in the summer of 2005.
The Pride not only boasts one of the better softball facilities in the Northeast, but also has a first-class locker room. The locker room, located in the Physical Education Building, includes plush, wall-to-wall carpeting, oak lockers and an entertainment center with a television and stereo.
