Baylor University Getterman Stadium

Picturesque Getterman Stadium, the women’s softball facility for Baylor University, is one of the four facilities included in the Turner Riverfront Complex. CDFL completed Getterman along with Baylor Ballpark in March of 2000, thereby establishing the design vocabulary for the later-built tennis and soccer venues.

The stadium seats 1,231 spectators under a fully roofed grandstand of brick masonry and exposed steel. Spectator and team amenities include concessions, public restrooms, retail sales, player dugouts, player restrooms. The stadium also boasts an air-conditioned press box, two broadcast booths, a VIP booth and game operations booth. The CDFL team also designed the landscaped pedestrian mall that traverses all of the facilities in the complex, complete with 2 large Baylor logos bricked into the sidewalk.

Getterman Stadium was named after Baylor graduates Ted and Sue Getterman in 2000 by the Baylor Athletic Department. The generous Getterman donation is recognized as the largest single donation ever to Baylor women’s athletics. The stadium has hosted games during the 2004, 2005, 2007 and 2009 NCAA Softball Championships.

“Opened in 1999, Getterman Stadium is arguably the nation’s premier softball facility. Four times in the past three years, overflow crowds have more than filled the park’s 1,230 seats.”

Fun Fact:

During a fall 2002 visit, President George W. Bush said Getterman was “truly an amazing stadium, and it speaks to the advances in women’s athletics.”
