The Lewis C. Everett Stadium, home of the Hampden-Sydney Tiger Football and Lacrosse teams, was constructed in 2007 and replaced the 40-year-old Hundley Stadium adjacent to Fulton Field. The 1850-seat facility blends with the Federal architecture of the campus, and provides space for press, scorekeepers, and radio announcers. Restrooms are located in the concourse area, with a filming platform in the cupola. Construction of the facility was made possible by a $2.5 million gift from Mr. Lewis C. Everett.
Mr. Everett '63, a native of Danville, Virginia, was a star football player while at Hampden-Sydney, earning First Team All-American honors. He still holds the H-SC record for longest punt (78 yards against Randolph-Macon College in 1962). In 1989, Everett was inducted into the Hampden-Sydney Athletic Hall of Fame.
Fulton Field has been the site of two ABC-TV Division III football broadcasts. The track along its east edge was once almost a railroad track - it was part of the right-of-way of the Orange and Keysville Railroad, abandoned in the 1890s before completion.
Ty Cobb Ball Park was opened on April 17, 2011 while the Tigers faced arch-rival Randolph-Macon on the final regular season baseball games of the 2011 season. With a seating capacity of 292, the new stadium will enhance the experience at Yank Bernier Field. In addition to the exterior seating, there is a luxury box on the second floor and press box on the third floor.
Hellmuth-Pritzlaff Field was constructed in 2006, thanks to the generous donations of alumni, parents and friends of the Hampden-Sydney College lacrosse program. The field lies directly between Rostan Field, the lacrosse practice facility, and the football practice fields. The synthetic turf field, allows the Tigers to play and practice even in inclement weather. The Tiger lacrosse team splits their home games between Everett Stadium and Hellmuth-Pritzlaff Field, allowing the team to have flexibility and versatility in their home environments. The soccer team also uses the field for an inclement weather field.
Miller Field is home to Hampden-Sydney soccer and has been one of the toughest venues in the ODAC. Since 2005, the Tigers have boasted a 47-13-4 record. Miller Field features bermuda grass and Pro Premier World Competition Goals - the official goal of the English Premier League and World Cup.
