SOUTH BEND -- Indiana University South Bend's women's softball team will play its home games at an upgraded field in Veterans Memorial Park, a city-owned park adjacent to campus.

The upgrades will be funded by a $105,000 gift from local businessman Richard Pfeil, Chancellor Terry Allison announced Friday.

In recognition of the improvements, the city will rename the softball venue Pfeil Field.

IU South Bend will lease use of the field at no cost from South Bend for at least five years and use it for home softball games, tournaments and practices. The team will begin its first season in spring 2017.

Pfeil Field will remain city property and will be open for public use when it isn't needed by the IU South Bend softball team. The park also will be used by the university for some intramural sports and activities. The park is located along Northside Boulevard just west of campus.

IU South Bend now has eight teams competing in the Chicagoland Conference of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics: men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball, men's baseball, men's and women's cross country, men's golf and women's softball.

The campus will add women's golf, men's and women's tennis, and competitive cheer for the 2017-18 season.
