Gophers baseball coach John Anderson said Thursday that Siebert Field – the team’s outdoor home for four decades – will play host to one final game on May 1 against St. Thomas.

The game, originally slated to be played at the Metrodome, was moved to Siebert Field to give the facility a proper send-off.

The Gophers are playing most of their home games at the Metrodome this year because of conditions at Siebert Field, and they are on track to build a new on-campus facility in the near future.

“Hosting a final game at Siebert Field is an opportunity to celebrate the deep tradition of Golden Gopher baseball,” Anderson said. “With this game, we want to recognize and remember the long-standing history that has occurred over the past 40 years in this facility.”
