Stanford Cardinal (NCAA DI Pac-12)
1931-present

Klein Field at Sunken Diamond is a college baseball stadium on the campus of Stanford University in Stanford, California. It is the home field of the Stanford Cardinal of the Pac-12 Conference.

The stadium was built 87 years ago in 1931 and has a seating capacity of 4,000.[1] When the adjacent football stadium was originally built in 1921, dirt was excavated from the site of the future baseball stadium, which created a "sunken" field a decade later.

Originally just known simply as Sunken Diamond, the field was renamed in 2008 to honor Stanford athlete and donor Bud Klein (1927-2011) and his family.[2][3][4]

In 2013, the Cardinal ranked 39th among Division I baseball programs in attendance, averaging 1,747 per home game.[5]

In 2012, college baseball writer Eric Sorenson ranked the facility as the fourth best setting in Division I baseball.[6]

The playing field at Sunken Diamond is oriented in an unorthodox configuration, with the batter and catcher facing south. The recommended orientation of a baseball diamond is east-northeast.[7]
