With arguable some of the finest facilities on the West Coast already in place, San Diego State made a case for national recognition with the addition of the new softball/tennis facility on the west side of the San Diego State University campus. The buildings next to Tony Gwynn Stadium were razed and when the 2005 softball season rolled around, a brand-new lighted facility opened as the new home for SDSU softball.

The brand-new lighted facility, completed in early February of 2005, has already played host to six regular season tournaments as well as the 2005 Mountain West Conference Championships. The SDSU Softball Stadium boasts 300 permanent seats (150 stadium and 150 bench-back), numerous bleacher seats and a mounded landscape that lies behind a five-foot green outfield fence. The stadium can hold 1,000 fans with room to add 1,000 more seats if needed.

Lighted batting cages and bullpens are available for each team and a tree-lined concourse graces the path between the new stadium and baseball's Tony Gwynn Stadium. Concessions and restrooms are shared with Tony Gwynn Stadium.

In its first year, SDSU moved from the first base dugout, where it used to play at SDSU Field, into the third base dugout at the new facility.

"John and Becky Moores, owners of the San Diego Padres, donated approximately $6.5 million for the combined facility.

Playing every home game at SDSU Softball Stadium in 2006 for the first time, SDSU finished 20-6 for a school-record winning percentage of .769.

The Aztecs fared particularly well down the stretch, winning eight of their final 10 home contests. Eleven of the team's 20 home victories were by three or more runs, while three of their six losses were by two runs or less.

In one-plus seasons at SDSU Softball Stadium, San Diego State is 30-18 (.625) and 12-8 (.600) in conference games.
