John Euliano Park
UCF calls one of the nation’s finest college baseball stadiums home in John Euliano Park.
Renamed for John Euliano, the UCF Foundation Board of Directors Vice Chair and a generous friend to the program, for the 2018 season, the ball park accommodates 3,841 fans thanks to major enhancements of the home plate tower.
The main upgrade to the stadium features a 300-seat premium club section, which will include outdoor seating and indoor amenities, such as an air-conditioned lounge, food and beverage service, private restrooms and a dedicated entrance to the space.
In 2012, UCF completed construction of a second level above the first-base line and bench-back bleachers along the first-base line past the home dugout. The playing surface itself is as finely manicured as any in the country, once being dubbed in the media as the South’s version of (Stanford’s) Sunken Diamond.
With wide open concourses and palm trees lining the concession area, fans have an ideal opportunity to get close to the action in one of the best settings in college baseball. A new scoreboard was added in 2008 and features a 38′ by 32.5′ display with a pitch-speed area and a 22′ by 11′ 20mm full color LED video board.
The overall facility includes offices for the UCF baseball coaching staff and a reception area. The Knights’ conference and meeting space was remodeled during the 2007 season, transforming into the UCF Tradition Room. This area offers a luxurious spot to relax, watch game film on a flat-screen television or focus on classwork. The walls, meanwhile, feature former members of the team that have set the standard for excellence with the Knights, such as players who have received All-American accolades. Plaques that honor UCF’s NCAA teams don the walls of the Tradition Room as well.
UCF players enjoy a spacious locker room with tall wooden lockers while the coaching staff has its own separate locker room. The facility also includes a weight room, training room and equipment room with complete laundry facilities. Attached to the players’ locker room is an impressive indoor facility that features three batting cages and two pitching mounds. The spacious practice area gives UCF the advantage to practice in all weather elements, all year long.
