Soldiers Field has been home to Harvard softball since the program's inception as a varsity team in 1981. Located in the shadow of historic Harvard Stadium, the softball field has undergone several renovations in the last few years, making it one of the finest fields in New England.

Recently, a fence was constructed around the field, dugouts were added and trees were planted to line the outfield fence. In addition, the outfield was leveled and several thousand pounds of top dressing were added to the clay. Since the 2004-2005 season, new renovations to the field included permanent brick dugouts, storage and a press box.

In 1994, batting cages were built next to Soldiers Field for use by the softball and baseball teams.

The scoreboard was erected in the fall of 1992, in the memory of Becky Pocius '94, a Harvard softball player who was killed in an automobile accident between her sophomore and junior seasons.
