Historyedit

The field was named after distinguished alumnus and Kappa Sigma brother David "Davy" Hoy, of which the "Davy" from Cornell's fight song, Give My Regards to Davy makes reference to Hoy also served many years as the university's registrar and was involved in the baseball program1

It opened in 1922 and has batting facilities that are dedicated in memory of Kerry Brooks, a 1990 graduate of Cornell and a former "Big Red" co-captain

Hoy Field is located just west of Schoellkopf Field and east of the Engineering Quad on the southern end of Cornell's campus The dimensions of the field from home plate to the outfield fence are 315 feet in left field, 405 feet in center field and 325 feet in right field2 The seating capacity of Hoy Field is about 500 For many years the Bacon Cage, an indoor batting practice facility that was also used as an indoor golf driving range, was located between Schoellkopf Field and Hoy Field However, Bacon Cage was demolished to build a parking garage and new press box on the west side of Schoellkopf Field

In 1947 it was proposed that the School of Industrial and Labor Relations be housed in a new building that would be built partly over the field, but protests from students and alumni blocked the project3

In 2006, the grass turf was removed and replaced with FieldTurf, which has many grass-like properties In 2012, the field hosted the 2012 Ivy League Baseball Championship Series, in which Cornell defeated Dartmouth two games to one4
