Rafeld-Rogers Baseball Field and 23rd Street Softball Field are the homes of the Mount Union baseball and softball teams while also serving as a practice facility for a variety of teams.
Rafeld-Rogers Field includes dugouts, bull pens a scoreboard and in 2010 the fan seating area was remodeled, a new outfield windscreen was added on the fencing along with the addition of a press box over the first base dugout. In 2019, an artificial turf infield was added.
The turf infield brought about a name change to Rafeld-Rogers Field after 30-year coach Jack 'Skip' Rafeld and former player and Alliance native Mike Rogers.
Rafeld served in various capacities of the Mount Union athletic department and physical education department from 1946-1979. In 30 years as baseball coach, Rafeld guided the Purple Raiders to an overall record of 304-220-3, won Ohio Athletic Conference titles in 1964 and 1970 and was the 1970 OAC Coach of the Year. The OAC Baseball Player of the Year Award was named after him from 1978-2011. His .568 winning percentage is currently ninth-best for a baseball coach in conference history.
Rogers was a four-year letterwinner at second base for Mount Union from 1974-77. As a senior in 1977, he hit .320 in 30 games and was tied for fourth in runs batted in with 16. After college, Rogers spent 17 years playing second base in the Canton Class A Baseball League. He made the All-Star Team in three different decades and played on three different League Championship teams. In 2001, he was inducted into the Stark County Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame. Rogers also spent many years as a baseball and wrestling coach for St. Thomas Aquinas High School.
The softball stadium includes dugouts and in 2009 a storage area and press box was added along with a fan seating area down the first base line.
