Linfield Baseball Camps Facilities


Facility Description:

The transformation of Linfield's baseball facility began in the late 1980s. Most of the improvements were the result of direct support from community members, who donated untold amounts of time, energy and resources.

Roy Helser Field, together with Jim Wright Stadium, has developed into to a jewel among Northwest colleges.

The facility has served as host of the 2009, 2010 and 2012 NCAA Division III regional playoffs and is again one of eight designated regional host sites in 2014.

<>The most recent addition was construction of a partially enclosed and fully covered batting practice structure, called "Carney's Cages" in honor of longtime baseball coach Scott Carnahan, who led the team from 1984 until 2007 and 2016-2018

A major change took place in 2008 when the grass infield was replaced with a FieldTurf artificial playing surface. Drainage was improved and construction of covered, enclosed batting cages on the venue site was undertaken. Prior to the 2013 season, the dirt pitching mound was also replaced with artificial turf to match the infield surface. The FIeldTurf playing surface was replaced and updated before the 2018 season and serves as the top playing surface in the Pacific Northwest.

In 2000, outdoor lighting was added to the field. Musco lighting systems were installed in the fall of 2000 to give more flexibility in scheduling while enhancing the facilities and allowing for NCAA post-season competition. Outdoor lighting  provides additional opportunities for McMinnville-area youth teams during the summer.

Wright Stadium was added to Helser Field in 1990. The stadium, a crescent-shaped brick and concrete grandstand, offers intimate, unobstructed views of the action on the field. It contains 860 aluminum-backed seats, along with a fully enclosed press box, public address system, dressing room and covered storage areas.

Ad & Joan Rutschman Fieldhouse

Completed in the fall of 1995, Linfield's multi-purpose field house is unique among Northwest colleges.

The baseball team hones their skills during the off season and regular season, using the field house for batting practice and drills. The 26,600 square feet facility is used as an indoor practice facility during inclement weather and provides flexible scheduling for camps and events. 

The field house is named in honor of retired Linfield athletic director, baseball and football coach Ad Rutschman, and his wife, Joan, who served as athletic secretary and ticket manager for 27 years.
