    Les Miller Field at Curtis Granderson Stadium

    HOME OF UIC FLAMES BASEBALL

    UIC baseball is in the midst of undertaking one of the most exciting projects in the history of the university's athletic department. Curtis Granderson Stadium, the new ballpark for the UIC Flames, will be a ballpark that redefines what a collegiate athletic facility can provide a team, a campus and a larger community. Plans for the ballpark have been made possible by a donation from UIC alumnus and four-time Major League Baseball All-Star Curtis Granderson, outfielder for the New York Mets. The donation marks the single largest known contribution from a professional athlete to their alma mater in history.

    Curtis Granderson Stadium is scheduled to host its grand opening on Thursday, April 17, in part of three-game series with Wright State over that weekend. The venue will play host to numerous youth league games throughout the spring and summer, providing inner-city Chicago students with access to one of the best collegiate ballparks in the nation. MLB's Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) and Urban Youth Academy Programs (UYA) will also utilize the ballpark.
