The Purdue Varsity Softball Complex, built in 1995, is one of the finest softball facilities in the nation. The Complex is furnished with a top-notch electronic scoreboard, large dugouts, two bullpens and two batting cages on both home and away sides, and a newly constructed pressbox. In 1997, the Purdue Softball Complex and maintenance crew received the NATIONAL Field and Grounds Crew Maintenance Award presented by Turface and the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
