HARRINGTON PITCH

The Charlie Harrington Pitch is located adjacent to the Govoni Baseball Field and Olin College.

Harrington Field is one of the only full-size rugby fields in New England. Boasting a beautifully maintained natural grass surface, the playing field itself is 100 yards long and 70 yards wide. With ample additional space surrounding the field for spectators, the venue also features a state-of-the-art electronic LED scoreboard, which was dedicated to Professor McKenzie between alumni games on Saturday, April 28, 2007.
