Bohl Diamond at Blair Field
Long Beach State University has been named by Baseball America as the top program in the nation in preparing Major League Baseball talent. Since 2010, the Dirtbags have had more active major leaguers than any other college or university. This rich tradition has been built by the through the discipline and toughness that embodies the Dirtbags Way.
In 2009, plans for a renovated Blair Field were released. Through the generous support of Marilyn Bohl, Troy and Danyll Tulowitzki, Jered Weaver and others, the beginning phases of the renovation started. This phase included the Tulowitzki Batting Facility, Weaver Bullpen, updated locker room, new fencing around the diamond, padding on the fencing, and the naming of Bohl Diamond at Blair Field.
We are now moving to the final phases of the renovation of Bohl Diamond at Blair Field. This will include:
- New NCAA Super Regional quality lighting system for the stadium
- New playing surface with proper drainage
- Premium seating, suites and dugout club areas
- Updated stadium amenities for fans (seating, restrooms, entrances, concourse, plaza, and concession areas)
- Updated amenities for players including dugouts, locker rooms, meeting areas, offices, study areas, nutrition areas, and sport performance

Walter Pyramid Upgrades

We are actively seeking supporters interested in investing to upgrade bench seating to chair back seats in Section 111. Naming opportunities for the seating section exist and will improve the overall fan experience in the Walter Pyramid.
