In 2014, the Tigers will play their eighth full season in the $1.7 million Tigers Softball Complex on the University of Memphis' Park Avenue Campus on the corner of Park Avenue and Getwell Road.

The stadium features a natural grass outfield and boasts spacious locker rooms and dugouts on each side of the base path. The dimensions of the 275-capacity stadium are 200 to the right and left fields and 220 to center. Bullpens are found to the side of each dugout and a batting cage rests beyond the right field fence. The press box to the complex consists of two broadcast booths and two workroom areas. High speed wireless Internet is available for the working media.

Spacious locker rooms behind each dugout were completed prior to the 2009 season. The bullpens were also upgraded before the 2010 season with field turf.

On Nov. 16, 2012, Memphis announced a $2.6 million gift from the Helen and Jable Hardin Charitable Trust (Foundation) for facility construction and development in support of various women's athletic programs. Over $1 million of the donation will go toward building a 10,000-square-foot addition to the softball complex that will include coaches offices, a coaches locker room, team meeting room, training room, indoor hitting and pitching area, laundry room and storage. Construction on the facility upgrade will begin during the 2014 summer.

Memphis officially dedicated its new stadium Apr. 7, 2007, before the final contest of a three-game series with Tulsa. University of Memphis President Dr. Shirley C. Raines threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Kimmi Hayden in front of a full house.

The Tigers began playing in the new facility on Mar. 24, 2007, in a three-game series against Houston.

In seven seasons, Memphis has played 138 home games in the stadium and has a 79-59 record. The Tigers have averaged an attendance of 202 for the 82 dates at the Tigers Softball Complex.
