Lee R. Jackson Baseball Field
Moved to its present site (adjacent to the UA soccer field) at
Lee Jackson Field in 1972, the Zips' diamond has undergone several
upgrades over the years to keep it among the finest college
facilities in Northeast Ohio. These improvements have generated a
great sense of pride in the Zips' "home field."
