Mark Light Field at Alex Rodriguez Park is a baseball stadium on the University of Miami campus in Coral Gables, Florida, USA. It is the home field of the University of Miami Hurricanes baseball team. The stadium holds a capacity of 5,000 spectators. The first game was held on February 16, 1973.[1]

Avid Miami fan George Light donated money for the field's construction.
