The American Legion State Baseball Committee has announced that the 2019 New Jersey American Legion Baseball State Finals will be held at Kean University. The Eight Teams that qualify from the Four District Tournaments will play starting Friday, July 26, 2019

The Baseball Stadium was originally built in 2000 and received a major upgrade in 2007 when FieldTurf was installed.  During that time there was a bleacher expansion for seating of over 700 and the addition of a press box. The field with major league dimensions is the premiere on campus collegiate baseball complex in New Jersey. The home bullpen features three game quality mounds and beyond the outfield fence is five turf batting cages and a separate tee area.  Upgrades in the summer of 2014 now include lighting.
