The New Mexico baseball program recently upgraded its practice facility and old home stadium with the installation of SS Turf in the infield of Lobo Field. The turf improves the playing surface during practice and allows for increased use of the field for high school tournaments.

JR Hale Construction, along with Scott Grady and Raylee Homes, donated time and resources in completing the project before the start of the baseball season.

In 2004, the Lobos will make their permament home in Isotopes Park, the 11,124-seat ballpark of the Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes, but will still use Lobo Field as the primary practice facility.

Lobo Field is widely considered a hitting-friendly facility. Its dimensions are 340 down the right and left field lines, 378 to the gaps and 405 to straight away center. The fences are eight-feet high, except in center field, where a 16-foot tall wall also serves as an excellent hitting background.

In 1998, a new addition to Lobo Field was an indoor batting cage, the Ambrose Alday Batting Complex. Complete with heat, lights and video monitors, the facility consists of three cages, is carpeted and is equipped with pitching machines. In 1999, a new aluminum fence was installed, giving the field a sparkling new look and providing an excellent hitting background.
