Robertson Field ..... Home of Gator Baseball
Robertson Field, the home of Allegheny Baseball, is located within the 203-acre Robertson Athletic Complex. The facility includes a batting cage, which sits along the right-field fence, allowing easy access for in-game use, and two spacious dugouts behind each baseline.
Kelly Swiney, a 1999 graduate of Allegheny College, is in his sixth season as the head coach at his alma mater. In his first four seasons as the Gators' skipper, he has guided the team to winning seasons each year, including a trip to the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) Tournament Championship game in 2013.
Last season, the Gators compiled a 26-16 record to mark the highest win total under Swiney's tutelage, including a 11-7 mark in conference play, to host a first round, NCAC Crossover series against the DePauw Tigers. The Gators would win the series, two games to one, to earn a spot in the 2013 NCAC Tournament, the Gators' first appearance since the 2010 campaign.
Once in the NCAC Tournament, the Gators used a 5-3 win over Denison and a comeback, 6-5 decision over Oberlin to advance to the Tournament Championship game against Wooster. The immensely successful tournament run procured four All-Tournament selections for the Gators, as rising senior Kyle Davis, juniors Eric Weyant and Zach Gray along with Frank Triozzi '13 were named to the listing.
Rising Sophomore Joe Killian closed Allegheny's most successful season since 2001 by earning the program's third NCAC Newcomer of the Year honor. In total, three Gators made the All-NCAC listing, as Killian, Davis and rising senior Eric Brandt were named to the season-ending squad.
Crum is in his fifth year as assistant baseball coach. During his time in Meadville, Crum has served as the third base coach for the Gators alongside pitch-calling duties, establishing one of the best catching regiemes in the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) by controlling the run game, limiting the number passed balls and managing the pitching staff. Under his tenure, Allegheny pitchers and catchers have led the NCAC in ERA, complete games, earned runs and strikeouts, while the fielding percentage among the team's catchers and the caught stealing percentage have increased over the last three seasons.
Off the field, Crum serves as the recruiting coordinator for the team, additionally organizing the team's prospect camps, winter and summer camps and the annual 18U Baseball tournament, held during the summer.
Last season, Crum guided the Allegheny pitching staff to the top NCAC marks in opponent batting average (.269), fewest walks (125), and fewest hits allowed (336). The group also ranked second in the conference in earned run average (5.01), fewest runs allowed (226), fewest earned runs allowed (177), and saves (9). Two of Crum's pitchers finished in the top 10 of the NCAC in ERA (Chase Boyer, Robert Julian) and three of the Gators pitchers garnered All-NCAC recognition (Boyer, Julian, Corey Keenan) during the 23-win campaign.

Jones enters his second year as volunteer assistant coach for the Allegheny Gators. Since his appointment in the fall of 2013, Jones has been tasked with assisting the Allegheny outfield contingent.

Following his college career, Jones was drafted in the fifth round of the 1972 draft by the New York Yankees. Jones started for the Yankees in 1979 in 14 games as a designated hitter, finishing the season with a .255 batting average. After his playing career, Coach Jones coached the Saegertown/Conneaut American Legion team for 18 years.
