Arizona State University unveiled the Alberta B. Farrington Softball Stadium in 2000 as home of the Sun Devil Softball team.Farrington Stadium features chair-back bleachers and individual seats with a capacity for 1,535 fans. In addition, a grass berm is located just beyond the first base line.
The stadium has several amenities that make it one of the premier softball stadiums in the Pac-12. Sunken dugouts are lighted for night games and have recessed, individual bat slots and locker room access. In addition, there are coaches’ offices, a training room, a built-in concession stand, a team shop, restrooms and locker rooms for the home team, visiting team and officials.
After adding a press box and extending the outfield fences before the 2013 season, Farrington was again upgraded before the beginning of the 2014 season in which solar panels were added above the stands, providing shade to most in the upper deck seats.
In addition to the added solar panels, Farrington also added a brand-new score board in left field during the 2014 season and a newly remodeled All-American hallway. The past couple seasons have seen upgrades to the team locker room and hallway to the dugout with future interior improvement projects in the works.
Prior to the 2015 seasons, graphics were added to the outfield walls to commemorate Sun Devil softball’s success through the years.
Touted as one of the best playing surfaces in the nation, the facility has also received two major awards for design and excellence in architecture.
In Fall of 2012 the outfield fence was moved further back. It's previous distance of 192 (L), 208 (C), 192 (R) was extended and completed in early 2013 to its current distance of 202 (L), 210 (C), 202 (R). The press box was opened on Feb. 28, 2013 as the newest addition to the facility. It seats 16 comfortably and the accordion windows offer unobstructed views of the playing field.
