Harris Field has been home to one of the most accomplished collegiate teams in the history of baseball, and to some of the most memorable moments in the history of the NAIA World Series. After years of baseball being played in cow pastures and back yards, Harris Field, slowly evolving and improving through the efforts of players, coaches, and volunteers, began to take its current shape in the 1970s. It was named after a prominent Lewiston business man and baseball enthusiast of the 1930s, Loyd Harris. Harris was known as “Mr. Baseball”, and it was through his efforts that Lewiston has become the baseball town that it is today. Although it has a seating capacity of only 5,000, Harris Field offers one of the most exciting and enjoyable ways to watch college baseball. The record attendance was set in 2008 when 5,530 fans came out to watch the NAIA World Series championship game. From the first pitch in February to the NAIA World Series games in late May, Harris Field and the easygoing small town atmosphere of the Lewis-Clark Valley give baseball fans a pleasant and memorable experience.
