It will be an historic day for University of Scranton athletics on Wednesday when the softball and baseball teams play the first competitions at the new Kevin P. Quinn, S.J. Athletics Campus in South Scranton.
The Quinn Athletics Campus is a $14 million initiative will be home to the University's soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, baseball and softball Division III NCAA teams. The 11-acre athletics campus located along Broadway Street in Scranton will also include bleacher seating, a field house with team locker rooms and a training room, parking, a community basketball court and a children's play area.
The Campus will see its first action on Wednesday at 4 p.m. when the softball team takes on Keystone College in a doubleheader. An hour later, the baseball team will take the field for a non-conference game against King's College.
Things won't slow down from there, as the baseball team will host Wilkes on Thursday at 5 p.m. Then, on Saturday, the softball team will take on Cazenovia in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. while the baseball team plays its own non-conference doubleheader against St. John Fisher beginning at 2 p.m. On Sunday, the softball team will host the first Landmark Conference event at the Campus when the Royals take on Juniata in a doubleheader at 1 p.m.
Spectators attending games at the Quinn Athletics Campus are asked to park in the church parking lot just past the complex on the same side of the street as the softball field. Parking on residential streets is not allowed and could result in a parking fine.
