Celebrate 100 Years of Hoy Field

Friday, April 29 – Sunday, May 1, 2022

Ithaca, NY

 The Cornell Baseball Association invites you to celebrate Hoy Field’s 100th Year with a weekend of special events in Ithaca. The weekend takes on additional significance as it is the next-to-last Ivy League weekend, and the Big Red will no doubt be in the hunt for the title with the opportunity to take down perennial contender Columbia. Cornell University has shown its commitment to the Baseball Program by funding most of our new facility. Let’s show our commitment to the program by showing up in numbers to support the current team and send out Hoy Field in the manner it deserves!
