Boston University Softball Camps

Facilities & Directions

The Boston University Softball Field, which serves as home to the Terrier softball team, has provided a decided home-field advantage since its renovation in the winter of 2001. Converted from Astroturf to a natural grass outfield/all-dirt infield, the BU Softball Field was home to a 19-game winning streak that lasted from its opening on April 4, 2001, until April 4, 2002. Over the past 12 seasons (1999-2010), the Terriers are an impressive 149-38 (.797) on their home turf, including last year's 13-3 record. BU has finished .500 or better at home in each of the last 12 seasons.
