Broncos win in Schott Stadium debut

Sellout crowd takes in the game.

The much-anticipated opening of the $8.6 million Stephen Schott Stadium took place in front of a sellout crowd of more than 1,500 on April 30. The Broncos gave the crowd its money’s worth with a 3-2 victory in 13 innings over the Gonzaga Bulldogs. A pregame ceremony honored the project’s major donors, including the facility’s namesake, Stephen Schott, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch. SCU President Paul Locatelli, S.J. ’60, and Mark Ravizza, S.J., blessed the field before the game and former Bronco coaches Lou Lucas and John Oldham sprinkled dirt from Washington Park and Buck Shaw Stadium, the previous two homes for SCU baseball, around the pitcher’s mound.
