Sammamish High School Field 1
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: 280 feet throughout the outfield. Fence 5'9" tall.
Infield: 105 feet at the lines, 121 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 is pretty good, and there aren't a lot of rocks, but you still will get the occasional bad hop.
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 can be a factor to the 1B and RF in late afternoon and early evening games.
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: SAM1 is usually used by the lower divisions due to the short outfield fence.
