The Battling Bishop softball team plays its home games at Margaret Sagan Field, located on South Henry Street on the southeastern corner of campus.
Named after Margaret Sagan ’48 in recognition of gifts from the Sagan family, Margaret Sagan Field is oriented similarly to neighboring Littick Field, with home plate at the northwest corner of the lot, the first base line parallel to Henry Street and the third base line heading toward US 23, which lies beyond the left field fence.
The facility features dugouts, bleacher seating, and a two-story press box with areas for concessions and storage. Its dimensions are 200 feet down the lines, 207 feet in the alleys and 215 feet to straightaway center, with a surrounding fence of vinyl-covered chain link. As part of the project, a parking lot was constructed off Henry Street south of the field, allowing off-street parking at softball contests.
From 2000-07, Ohio Wesleyan home games were played at the city of Delaware’s Mingo Park, a complex of 3 softball fields north of the Ohio Wesleyan campus.
