Ole Miss Softball Complex

Ole Miss Softball Complex

The Ole Miss Softball Complex has been the home for the Rebel softball team for nearly the entirety of the program, bringing in thousands of fans over the years to Oxford. A venue that hosted the 2011 SEC Softball Championship, the complex features an outfield terrace behind the left field wall similar to the outfield seating at Swayze Field where the Ole Miss baseball team competes. In preparation for the league championship in 2011, upgrades were made to include the outfield terrace, as well as a grilling area, pavilion and a camera platform in center field. Other improvements at the time included a new LED video board and scoreboard, but that has since been replaced prior to the 2016 season by a state-of-the art board that ranks as one of the biggest and brightest in college softball. 

A $1.2 million renovation project completed in the spring of 2006 included a new indoor hitting/practice facility, a new press box, refurbished dugouts, new video and audio systems, a brick facade lining the grandstands, new lighting, new fencing and netting and a central seating section with chair-back seats. 

The 2016 campaign saw record numbers of fans pass through the gates, as the Rebels shattered the seaon attendance record, as well as nearly all 10 of the single-game marks. A record 13,506 fans witnessed the Rebels play their 29 home contests, which shattered the previous record of 7,529 set in 2015. Twice throughout the home stretch of the season saw a record number fans for a single game, as the recorded attendance of 1,410 against No. 9 Tennessee on May 7 became the new mark for the highest attended game in school history. A month prior, 1,342 witnessed the Rebels take on No. 2 Florida on April 9, as both weekends resulted in series attendance records with 3,028 fans in the Florida series, and 2,990 in the weekend against the Vols. At season's end, seven of the single-game attendance marks were the highest in program history, as only three of the top-10 crowds of all-time were in a season other than 2016. The fan support was instrumental in 2016 helping the Rebels win a school record 21 home games, en route to a 41-22 campaign that included the team's first ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
