Gonzaga University plans addition to Patterson Baseball Complex

Gonzaga University is planning to expand Patterson Baseball Complex.

In a pre-development application filed with the city by Spokane-based ALSC Architects, the university indicated it’s looking to build an addition to the complex that will house a new locker room, hall of fame and indoor practice facility.

The addition will extend along the south side of the current facility at 703 E. Trent Ave.

Work also calls for demolishing existing batting cages, relocating a field lighting pole and reconfiguring the complex’s parking lot.

The estimated project cost is $6.9 million, according to the application.

Patterson Baseball Complex can host more than 1,500 attendees and includes a clubhouse with locker rooms, lounge, training room, laundry facility as well as locker rooms for officials and visiting teams, according to Gonzaga’s website.

The complex was named after the family of the late Michael Patterson, a former attorney and past chairman of Gonzaga’s board of trustees.

Patterson Baseball Complex and Washington Trust Field opened in 2007, bringing baseball back to Gonzaga’s campus after spending four years at Avista Stadium.

In 2018, Washington Trust Field was renamed to Coach Steve Hertz Field.

Hertz is a former Gonzaga baseball coach that took two teams to the NCAA regionals and was named conference Coach of the Year four times.
