Matador Field is a baseball venue located on the campus of Cal State Northridge in Northridge, California, United States. It is home to the Cal State Northridge Matadors baseball team, a member of the Division I Big West Conference. The venue was opened on March 4, 1961, with the Matadors losing 10-8 to Claremont-Mudd. The facility has a capacity of 1,000 people.[1]


In 1975, a three-year renovation process began which saw a new infield, scoreboard, batting cages, fencing, bleachers, and press box installed. A clubhouse adjoining the Matador dugout was constructed in 1981. A new infield was installed in 1993, followed by a new scoreboard and video replay screen over the right field fence in 1996.[1]
