Mel Nicks Field
St. Norbert College’s baseball and softball teams play at Mel Nicks Field, located one-half mile south of campus on Lost Dauphin Road and named in honor of the college’s longtime baseball coach.
While Nicks coached at St. Norbert, the student body affectionately called the field “Candlenicks” based on the early spring windy conditions, combined with the Nicks’ name and the close connection to San Francisco’s stormy Candlestick Park. It was Nicks’ idea to build the field in the early 1960s on an area which was once a turnaround for streetcars servicing De Pere and Green Bay.
Seating is limited. Fans visiting Mel Nicks Field are advised to bring lawn chairs and to dress appropriately for Wisconsin spring weather.
Admission to St. Norbert baseball and softball events is free.
