Justin D. Wilson Batting FacilityMavericks in the Majors • 1400 Maverick, Arlington, Texas 76013
Clay Gould Ballpark has been the home of record breakers, major leaguers and champions. The 1,600-seat facility originally opened in 1974 and has undergone several upgrades to keep the complex amongst the best in college baseball.

In 2015, the Mavericks opened a state-of-the-art clubhouse that gives UTA a new on-site home. The 6,000 sq. ft. facilityincludes a players clubhouse, an equipment and laundry room, a sports medicine training room and coaches' offices.

"My first thoughts are that it's very first class," UTA baseball supporter Roy Wilson said. "They went over and above what I thought it was going to be. It's top-shelf and we don't take a backseat to anybody in the metroplex or anywhere around."

Wilson was a major supporter in helping UTA's dream of an indoor hitting facility come to a reality in 2013. The Justin D. Wilson Batting Facility, named after Roy Wilson's son, was opened on the eve of the 2013 season.The 5,940 sq. foot facility contains interchangable batting cages, pitching mounds and the ability for interchangable settings to allow for an open practice when necessary.

UTA's home was re-named Clay Gould Ballpark on April 26, 2003, after the former UT Arlington standout player and coach. The name change was at the suggestion of Dr. Allan Saxe, an associate professor of political science at UT Arlington, whom the ballpark was previously named after. In front of a crowd of nearly 1,000 people, the name change officially took place and Gould's widow, Julie, and daughter, Logan, unveiled the memorial of Clay Gould on the outside wall of the main entrance.


In 2009 a Daktronics ProStar® LED Display video board was installed and the center section of the grandstands also received an upgrade with approximately 345 new seats added. Other additions to the stadium took place in 1999, when a three-foot high brick wall spanning from dugout to dugout was added, along with a new net backstop.

The stadium was originally opened in 1974 as the Mavericks hosted TCU in what became the UT Arlington debut of head coach Butch McBroom.

Besides UTA baseball, the diamond has played host to the Texas State Junior College Tournament, the state American Amateur Baseball Congress Connie Mack and American Legion Tournaments and numerous high school playoff games. It also served as the venue for Major League tryout camps. The field has dimensions of 330 feet down the lines, 380 feet into the power alleys and 400 feet to straight away center field.
