Ron Buel field is the home of the Drake softball program. A new Daktronics scoreboard was installed in right-center in April, 2011, adding visual flair to Drake’s already-great softball facility. The board features a stylish arched design and a Daktronics ribbon board at its heart. Buel Field underwent another renovation in the fall of 2012 as permanent chair back seating was installed down the third base line, as well as permanent bleachers behind home plate and down the first base side. Both projects were made possible by generous donations from Ron Buel (BN 1962). 

The new press box includes a new sound system, phone lines and internet access. The fence behind the backstop was replaced by a netting system and a low brick wall. The outfield got treated with a state of the art drainage system to help keep the field playable. 

Buel Field is one of the premier softball facilities in the region and Missouri Valley Conference.

Stop by some time and root on your local Drake Bulldog softball team. Every year is exciting with the winning Drake tradition.
