Kamphuis Field at Liberty Softball Stadium

For the second year in a row, Kamphuis Field at Liberty Softball Stadium has been named among the top NCAA softball stadiums in the country. Liberty Softball Stadium was recently voted No. 6 in a Top 25 NCAA Division I Softball Stadiums fan poll conducted by

Liberty Softball Stadium, a state-of-the-art, 1,000-seat venue which opened in 2015, was voted second in the same poll, behind LSU's Tiger Park last year.

This year's top vote-getter was Lamson Park, home of Louisiana Lafayette, while Alabama's Rhoads Stadium and Notre Dame's Melissa Cook Stadium followed in second and third. Arkansas' Bogle Park and the aforementioned Tiger Park at LSU round out the top five.

Liberty's stadium opened on March 19, 2015, when the Lady Flames downed Rider, 9-2. The stadium dedication took place on April 3, 2015 prior to the team's 7-3 win over Presbyterian. The Lady Flames have gone 27-17 all-time at Liberty Softball Stadium, including 14-7 during the 2016 season. The field is named after legendary fast pitch softball pitcher Dwayne Kamphuis.

Liberty Softball Stadium includes 1,000 chairback seats, home, visitor and umpires' locker rooms, team room, situation room, coaches' offices, indoor batting tunnels, two full bullpens and an expansive athletic training room. The state-of-the-art press box houses all game operations, home and visiting radio booths, TV booth and suite.

In addition to playing all of its home games at the sixth-rated stadium in the nation, the Lady Flames will play at two more stadiums that appear on the Top 25 listing this season. Liberty will play at Auburn's Jane B. Moore Field (No. 14) from March 2-4, while playing at Tennessee's Sherri Parker Lee Field (No. 17) on March 28.

Fans will have many chances to catch the Lady Flames at home this year, as Liberty has 20 scheduled home games. The Lady Flames first home contest is March 10 at 4 p.m., when they take on Rhode Island to begin the Liberty Softball Classic. Liberty's home schedule also features games against Virginia and Virginia Tech, along with conference series versus Presbyterian, Radford and two-time defending Big South champion Longwood.
