Sammamish High School Field 2
To get to the fields, you need to walk around the left side of the football field.
Directions: From I-405, take the NE 8th St exit heading east. Turn right on 140th Ave NE, and go to main. The High School is across the street on the left.
Lights: None (no 8:30pm games)
Outfield: 300 feet throughout the outfield. Fence 5'9" tall.
Infield: 138 feet at the lines, 157 feet at second base.
Foul Territory: 18 feet of foul territory throughout. Fences 3'10" high along the outfield.
Backstop: Not very much room back there-only 18 feet total.
Infield: The infield at SAM2 in extremely deep, so it tends to confuse outfielders into playing too deep. The ground is average, but watch out for bounces off the pitchers mound, which is raised for baseball.
Outfield: The outfield is.
Dugout: The dugouts are small and can be crowded, but they're covered which is nice when there's a drizzle.
Sun: The sun is a major factor for 3B and LF for 6pm games, and becomes an issue for SS as well. When it's at it's worst, it can be extremely dangerous, particularly at 3B. Use caution.
Rain: The field is fair at water drainage and is subject to average rainout likelihood.
Area: Both Sammamish fields frequently have high school softball or baseball games or practices that can go right up until 6:00pm. If they're not off by 6pm, call Dave Ravet at the BB/SAA administrative office. There's not a lot of room to warm up if the fields are in use. Don't worry about a foul ball or home run hitting your car-it's a good walk from the parking lot to the fields. As with any school park, be especially careful to obey traffic laws in the area.
Notes: SAM2 is known for the bad sun at 3B, and the large infield.
