Product Description

COUGAR STADIUM & MILLER FIELD

MWP-UY016 update

LaVell Edwards Stadium is a stadium on the campus of Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. It is primarily used for American football, and is the home field of the BYU Cougars.

The stadium opened in 1964 as Cougar Stadium, replacing a smaller, 5,000-seat stadium of the same name. The capacity of the facility was just under 30,000 with stands on both sides of the playing field. Seating was soon added to make room for 35,000 fans. Temporary bleachers placed at the back of the end zones raised the capacity to 45,000. In 1982, the stadium was expanded to accommodate more than 65,000. Permanent concrete stands, separated by entryways from the east and west grandstands, were put in place of the temporary bleachers, the playing field was lowered eight feet and the track was removed. At the end of the 2000 football season the name of the stadium was changed to LaVell Edwards Stadium, in honor of the legendary head coach, who retired at the end of the season.

Miller Park, a unique, combined baseball-softball facility, is the home of BYU baseball and softball. Baseball plays on Larry H. Miller Field, while softball calls Gail Miller Field, a back-to-back mirror image of the pre-existing baseball field, home. It is the first combined facility of its kind.

Miller Park’s blend of engineering ingenuity and scenic beauty are a favorite of baseball aficionados—and not just Cougar fans. Larry H. Miller Field at Miller Park was featured in February of the 2002 Great Parks Calendar provided by Baseball America. It was also among the featured facilities in the October 2001 Athletics Administration magazine.
