Joe Etzel Field

Joe Etzel Field is a 1,300 seat baseball stadium in Portland, Oregon that is home to the University of Portland Pilots baseball team. Originally named Pilot Field, it was renamed after former coach Joe Etzel in 2004.[1]

Completed in 2005, the Andy Pienovi Hitting Facility is the baseball team's practice facility. It is located in foul territory in left field.[2]

Preliminary campus expansion plans include moving the baseball field from its current location to one down on the waterfront in the Triangle Park property.[3] Those plans were abandoned in 2013 with plans to instead renovate the existing stadium.[4] The school has since added artificial turf and lighting.
