Directions: Go west on Observatory Dr. toward the hospital. Take a right onto Walnut St. The complex is behind (i.e., north--northeast of) the Nielsen Tennis Center.

The complex, located at 2415 University Bay Drive, is an extensive redesign of the previous softball field. Groundbreaking for the facility took place on June 25, 1998 and the Badgers opened the facility with a 9-1 victory over Loyola on March 30, 1999. The facility is named after the Goodman brothers -Robert and Irwin- who were longtime area softball players, businessmen, and UW donors.

The facility is considered to be one of the top five complexes in the country with the visual aesthetics of overlooking the beautiful Lake Mendota, to the state-of-the-art amenities. Aside from the field, the facility has numerous luxuries including dugouts, locker areas, a players' lounge, grandstand seating, a spacious press box and fan amenities such as restrooms and concessions. 

Capacity: the complex accommodates nearly 1,600 spectators.

Tickets are sold at the event starting 1 hour before each game. Prices are $5 for adults, and $2 for youth (2-17), seniors (55+), and UW students.
