Tourist Spot
Centennial Field is the name of the baseball stadium at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont and is the home of the Vermont Lake Monsters of the New York Penn League (minor league), the Short Season Class A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics.Beyond the left-field fence is the former home of the University of Vermont's men's and women's soccer teams as well as once serving as UVM's home field for its men's and women's lacrosse teams, and its football team (1900–1974).The field takes its name, Centennial Field, from the fact that the land on which it was built was dedicated to its current purpose on July 6, 1904, at the conclusion of the three-day celebration of the 100th anniversary of UVM's first graduating class. Its first baseball game was on April 17, 1906 with UVM's 10–4 victory over the University of Maine. Larry Gardner was the first batter for UVM. Future-Boston Red Sox pitcher Ray Collins started the game for Vermont and threw the first pitch at the ballpark. Gardner and Collins are among 10 former Catamounts to reach the major leagues, the latest being Kirk McCaskill, who hurled for the Angels and White Sox from 1985 to 1995 after being a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award as a standout ice hockey player at UVM.

  • Good spot for some minor league baseball. The games are suited more towards a kid friendly atmosphere with crazy giveaways and between-inning antics.
  • Great local field is accessible and set up great for the whole family.
  • I'm not a huge sports fan but I always try and go to one game a year for the experience. A few years ago they re-did all the seats so half the ticket holders are no longer sitting on concrete slabs. 25-cent hot dog night is amazing.
  • Not a bad field to go to for a game. Parking can be a pain and the bathrooms are disgusting.
  • Great time at a nice field
