The University of North Dakota baseball team plays its home games at historic Kraft Field, a city-owned stadium located in Grand Forks, N.D. The facility includes bleacher seating for 2,000 in a picturesque setting with evergreen trees lining the outfield fence.
UND's home field received a face lift in the fall of 2010 as the infield was replaced by FieldTurf - a synthetic playing surface that allowed for longer use in the fall months and an earlier start in the spring.
The facility is named after longtime UND head coach Harold "Pinky" Kraft, who restarted the university's baseball program in 1956. In 1992 and 2004, Kraft Field was the site of the North Central Conference Baseball Championships.
In case of inclement weather, all camps will be moved to the Hyslop Sports Center on the UND campus.
Built in 1951, the Hylsop Sports Center, then known as the UND Fieldhouse was a major upgrade in facilities. When the North Dakota Legislature, behind the urging of State Senators Joseph B. Bridston and Carroll E. Day, both of Grand Forks, appropriated $500,000 for the Fieldhouse in 1947, it was the largest appropriation for an athletic facility at UND since $25,000 was given in 1907 and $35,000 was given in 1919 to complete the federally-built shell that became the Armory.
Prior to admittance to participate in any of the baseball camps provided by UND, players are required to complete a liability
waiver form. The form can be downloaded by going to the baseball page on UNDSports.com and clicking on the link called 'Camps' on the right-hand side. The form must be completely filled out and sent in with prior payment and registration.
