Home of the Arkansas Razorback softball team, Bogle Park was recognized by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) as the 2022 Netting Professionals/NFCA DI Field of the Year.
Bogle Park was made possible thanks to the lead gift made by Bob and Marilyn Bogle and the Bogle family who have also made significant contributions to both the university and the athletic departments over the course of many years. An event celebrating the naming was held Friday, Oct. 26, 2009.
Bogle Park was designed by Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf and their lead architects John Lindstaedt, Dan McCloskey and Chad Lothamer. McClelland Consulting Engineers is the civil engineer for Bogle Park. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers are TME Consulting Engineers and the structural engineers are Engineering Consultants. Construction of the facility is handled by Nabholz Contruction’s Ozark division and would not be possible without the many donors and partners of the project.
The playing surface is tended by a crew led by Austin Freeman.
With a total capacity of 3,200, Bogle Park is regarded as one the nation’s premier softball stadiums as it hosted the highest attended Regional and Super Regional in the NCAA in 2022. Arkansas finished the 2022 season third in cumulative attendance (66,247) and fourth in average attendance (1,948) at home. Nine of the 10 highest attended games in Bogle Park history were played in 2022. Bogle Park sold out nine times in 2022.
One of Bogle Park’s most striking aspects is the dramatic entrance on the concourse level. Upon entry, fans see the field and then descend into the seating area which is home to 1,200 chair-back seats. There is space for groups in the outfield Berm while six modern skyboxes overlook the field.
Bogle Park saw the third-highest program top crowd in NCAA history as 3,448 fans were on hand for a 3-0 Arkansas victory over Ole Miss on March 28, 2018. Only Fresno State and Alabama have better single-game program bests.
