Batting cages sit behind the Pride dugout in the right field corner of the ballpark.

The outfield fence at University Field is taller in left field than in right, with a very tall center field fence protecting the fitness center behind the park.

The outfield fence forms a deep corner in center field, with trees pushing out into the wall.

The field features an entirely artificial infield with a natural grass outfield, and the scoreboard sits behind the right field fence.

Planes frequently fly over the field, taking off and landing at nearby LaGuardia Airport.
