Originally built in the 1950's, the Goshen College Baseball Complex has undergone many improvements throughout the years. Pine trees planted in the 80's provide an intimate feel along with a valuable wind break behind the backstop and dugouts as well as an excellent hitting background beyond center field.

Around the same time, former coach Devon Hoffman also constructed the current press box and the batting tunnel, which features an all-weather turf floor.

In 2006, the infield was resurfaced making for one of the finest playing surfaces around, while a full-infield tarp was purchased at that time to help protect it. The field has unique dimensions of 330 feet down the lines, 398 feet in the power allies, and 380 feet to straight-away centerfield.

The home bullpen features a double barrelled mound and a full infield tarp was purchased in the fall of 2006. The whole field is watered by an electronic automatic irrigation system.

Behind home plate, the press box was renovated to increase seating in the fall of 2013.

When the Maple Leafs cannot be outdoors due to the weather, they have the Roman Gingerich Recreation and Fitness Center to rely upon. Three full-size basketball courts allow plenty of room for long toss and the option of setting up a full-size infield. The cages are big enough for pitchers to throw live to hitters from indoor portable mounds.
