Green Tree Park has been the home field of Point Park University baseball since the fall of 2010. Located in Green Tree, Pa., just three miles from Point Park's downtown Pittsburgh campus, it is one of the top collegiate baseball facilities in Western Pennsylvania.

“The ability to have a first-class, collegiate facility close to our campus is a major, welcome addition to our program,” said Torres, a native of Miami, Fla. “The proximity of the facility to our campus and the quality of the facility will enhance our athlete’s experience. We are excited to develop a long-lasting relationship with the Green Tree Borough.”

Since 1995, the venue has been known as Duquesne University Field. But after the 2010 season, the Dukes discontinued their baseball program, which opened up availability for the field owned by Green Tree Borough. When the field was built, Green Tree Borough provided the land, and Duquesne financed the construction.

The Pioneers had played their home games at Frank J. Marko Field at Burkett Recreation & Sports Complex located on Route 60 in Robinson Twp. Their new field, however, is located much closer to Point Park’s downtown Pittsburgh campus.

The field in Green Tree Borough features an all-grass infield, and field dimensions are 400 feet in center, 335 feet down the foul lines and 365 feet in the gaps. Amenities of the ballpark include spacious dugouts, batting cages and bullpens.

Grandstand seating includes several rows of bleachers behind home plate. The ballpark grounds include a walking track around the field and a spacious area with trees behind the grandstand.

The first official event for Point Park at their new home field was the Alumni Game in September of 2010. The Pioneers’ first game at their new home venue was March 16, 2011 vs. Penn State-Beaver. Mike Tullio delivered the first pitch for Point Park at the new venue, and Zach O'Neal got the first hit, a single. On April 2, O'Neal hit the first home run at the facility for the Pioneers.
