Olsen Field is a baseball stadium in College Station, Texas, that is home to the Texas A&M baseball program. The stadium was dedicated on March 21, 1978, and is named in honor of Pat Olsen, a 1923 graduate of Texas A&M University and a former baseball player in the New York Yankees farm system. Olsen Field has served as an NCAA regional site five times and had its 1999 regional attendance ranked second with 53,287. The first NCAA Regional Tournament held at Olsen Field was in 1989.

In 2004 Sports Illustrated on Campus ranked Olsen Field "the best college baseball venue". Aggie baseball fans called RAggies, have a reputation of fiercely "ragging" opponents.[1]

The Texas A&M athletics department is in the preliminary phases of planning renovations of Olsen Field. Some new features of the stadium include a student athletic center, extending seats closer to the field, and updating Aggie Alley. The project is estimated to cost $16 million.[2][3]
