David F. Hoy Field, usually referred to simply as Hoy Field, is a baseball field at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where the Big Red's baseball team plays. The field—named after the "Davy" from Cornell's fight song, Give My Regards to Davy—opened in 1922 and has batting facilities that are dedicated in memory of Kerry Brooks, a 1990 graduate of Cornell and a former "Big Red" co-captain.

Hoy Field is located just west of Schoellkopf Field and east of the Engineering Quad on the southern end of Cornell's campus. The dimensions of the field from home plate to the outfield fence are 315 feet in left field, 405(?) feet in center field and 325 feet in right field. The seating capacity of Hoy Field is about 500.

For some legends and history of Hoy Field, see Cornelliana.

In 2006, the grass turf was removed and replaced with FieldTurf, which has many grass-like properties.
