Pentecost Plaza

Pentecost Plaza

Visit the historic sports field and MSU’s oldest athletic facility, the Pentecost Plaza at Old College Field.

The Pentecost Plaza at Old College Field serves as the entrance to the McLane Baseball Stadium, the Secchia Softball Stadium and the DeMartin Soccer Stadium. All fields offer free student admission. 

This is the oldest athletic facility on campus that is still in continuous use. It was purchased in 1900 as the home of Spartan baseball, MSU’s first varsity sport. In addition, DeMartin stadium was one of the first soccer facilities in the Midwest. 

The Pentecost Foundation was established in 2002. It was named in honor of Joe D. Pentecost, an entrepreneur and real estate developer who was an MSU season-ticket holder and donor for more than 35 years. 

This location is rich in historical significance. In fact, it was approved as a historical marker to celebrate 125 years of intercollegiate athletics.
