The field is ancient, but the stadium is brand new. It is on the Holy Cross campus (you can see some of the college buildings in the Williams photo.) It is on a par with Hadlock Field in Portland. In the background of the new photo you can see the football stadium, also known as Fitton Field, which holds about 25,000. It is reminiscent of BC's Alumni Stadium pre-1970.

Judging by the photos, the diamond was reoriented.
