The Petersen Sports Complex is built on 12 acres at the peak of Pitt's upper campus, and provides state-of-the-art homes for the Panthers' baseball, softball and men's and women's soccer teams. The Petersen Sports Complex not only gives Pitt student-athletes nationally competitive facilities, but it also rejuvenates a previously untapped area of land that neighbors the University of Pittsburgh campus.
The baseball facility includes a press box, team dugouts and hitting and pitching practice areas. Synthetic grass allows the Panthers to play and practice throughout the year and lighting will allow for evening games.
The Charles L. Cost Center is one of the newest additions to the Panthers athletic complex. The indoor athletic facility is spacious enough to house a regulation football field or nine tennis courts. The Cost Center was recently resurfaced with a new Astroturf surface and has served as an indoor practice facility for the Panthers football, baseball and softball teams.
