About Easton Stadium
One of the nation's premier softball programs has its own home at Easton Stadium. UCLA's softball squad moved into the 1,200-seat facility in 1996.
Named for prominent UCLA engineering alumnus Jim Easton - president of Easton Aluminum, maker of advanced sporting equipment including bats - the facility was recognized by Athletics Management magazine as one of the finest of its type in the nation. It was built on the former site of the Bel-Air heliport on the north side of the UCLA campus.
The all-time attendance record of 1,247 was set for a UCLA-Arizona State game in April 1997.
The field is natural grass with a clay infield. Dimensions include left and right-field line measurements of 190 feet and 210 feet to straightaway center. Seating is available for 1,200.
