The unveiling of Fowler Park, USD’s state-of-the-art baseball facility named in honor of Ron and Alexis Fowler’s generosity, was announced on Jan. 28 by President Mary E. Lyons, PhD, and Executive Director of Athletics Ky Snyder. The facility will be included in the first phase of plans to upgrade the university’s athletics and recreational infrastructure, and is part of the Department of Athletics’ $30 million fundraising effort, “The Drive for Torero Success.”

Slated for completion in 2013, Fowler Park will house a 1,700-seat baseball stadium (which can expand to more than 3,000 for special events), along with field lighting, a team clubhouse, coaches’ office space, and press and suite levels. The new playing field will continue to be known as Cunningham Field, in recognition of former USD Baseball Coach John Cunningham.

A longtime supporter of the university and its athletic programs, Ron Fowler currently serves as chair of the USD Board of Trustees. Additional initial-phase athletics and recreation improvements include a new golf/softball/club sports facility, and the renovation of the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Facility.
