To hear the crack of a bat, hope for the opportunity to catch a foul ball and experience the excitement of a home run, visit Hawkins Field at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. This stadium is home to the university's Commodores baseball team. Before the stadium was built in 2002, the baseball team played at McGugin Field, which was also where the football team practiced.
