MEDLAR FIELD AT LUBRANO PARK
Completed in 2006, Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park is the 134,000 sq. ft. home to the Nittany Lion baseball program and the New York-Penn League's State College Spikes. The stadium, housing up to 6,000 fans, is part of Penn State's "athletic village" mirroring the brick, metal, concrete design of nearby athletic venues. On 30 August 2007, Medlar Field was recognized as the first baseball stadium in the country to be awarded LEED certification and honored for its environmental initiatives.
In honor of baseball coach Chuck Medlar, Penn State grad Anthony Lubrano along with the State and University contributed to the financial reality of the construction of the stadium. The stadium, functioning as a pro park, a college park and an academic setting, is designed to utilize its size and features efficiently while showcasing the breathtaking vistas of Mount Nittany and surrounding athletic venues.
Lubrano Park features many impressive green functions such as water conservation, advanced lighting, and computer sensors to monitor and control efficient energy uses. The stadium itself is constructed with some recycled steel, pre-cast concrete, carpeting and ceiling tiles and manufactured regionally. The stadium's paints, adhesives, composite wood and sealants are low or zero VOC. Spectators can appreciate the game from their recycled plastic seats with more than ample legroom. The stadium's concourses are extra wide and feature numerous picnic tables for fans to enjoy their concessions. So take advantage of the convenient bus loop route or bike racks nearby and enjoy a good ol' American sport!
