Scenic K.T. Young Ballpark, home to the Panthers since 1972, is one of the nicest in the Midwest. The field saw recent improvements in 2014 when professional style dugouts and bullpens were added along with a press box, a new scoreboard, and two 70-foot batting cages down the left field line. It features a crushed red brick and natural turf infield and an outfield fence lined with more than 100 trees. The field also has a sprinkler system throughout the field.

The park is named after Kenneth T. Young '65 and in memory of Thomas D. Young '39 for their participation in and support of athletic programs at Hanover College.

The field is named Dick Naylor Field in honor of former head baseball coach Dick Naylor for his outstanding service to Hanover College and his accomplishments as head baseball coach for 36 years.

The Gaunt Grandstands and Press Box are named in honor of Jim '67 and Kate Gaunt for their special interest in the students of Hanover College and for their generous financial support to the athletic facilities project of the Live Our Loyalty Campaign.
