About College of the Holy Cross Athletics

Fitton Football Stadium

The 23,500-seat capacity Fitton Football Stadium was built in 1924 and renovated in 1986. Both the stadium and Fitton Baseball Field were named after Father Fitton, who purchased the land on which the school was founded and deeded it to Bishop Fenwick in 1843.

Fitton Baseball Field

Renovated in 2005, Fitton Baseball Field has a capacity of 3,000. The Holy Cross baseball team played its first game on this field in 1905. The Worcester Bravehearts, a collegiate summer baseball team, play their games on Fitton.

Built in 1975, the Hart Recreation Center contains a basketball arena with seating for 3,600, an ice rink, a six-lane swimming pool with separate diving area, racquetball courts, rowing practice tanks, cardiovascular rooms, and locker rooms.
