The Southeast Missouri baseball team calls Capaha Field home. Located just two blocks west of the Southeast Missouri State campus, Capaha Field is owned and operated by the City of Cape Girardeau.
Capaha Field has recently undergone a $1.8 million renovation that featured all-new synthetic turf. Other upgrades to the facility included a brand-new scoreboard equipped with a video board, a new outfield fence, new bullpens, as well as other cosmetic upgrades including new paint and fencing all around the field.
In addition to the ball field, Capaha Park features playgrounds, a pond, picnic areas, and a recently added frisbee golf course.
Redhawk fans enjoy watching the Southeast Missouri baseball team from the hillsides behind the first base dugout and beyond the left field wall. Southeast consistently leads the Ohio Valley Conference in attendance each season.
Capaha Field includes a state-of-the-art press box which was completed prior to the start of the 2006 season. The press box, which is fully equipped with wireless broadband internet access, televisions, a kitchen/lounge area and restroom, gives staff and media an excellent view behind home plate.
The dimensions of Capaha Field are 330 feet down the lines, 375 to the alleys, and 400 to straight-away center field. The fence running along the outfield is nine feet high.
Southeast Missouri baseball has called Capaha Field home since the program’s inception in 1959.
