John W. Smithson Field


Opened in the spring of 2012, John W. Smithson field is setting the standard for college ballparks on the east coast. Smithson field is on the Saint Joseph’s University campus, nestled between the bustling city of Philadelphia and the beautiful backdrop of Lower Merion Township.


The playing surface is AstroTurf 3D GameDay Grass, which is the same turf used at both Tropicana Field (home of the Tampa Bay Rays) and the Rogers Centre (home of the Toronto Blue Jays). The ballpark is also equipped with pro-style dugouts, elevated bullpens beyond the right field wall, and outdoor batting cages.
