Michigan Softball Information Guide
Free parking is available in several lots near the Wilpon Complex, home of Alumni Field. The primary parking lots for softball are the Athletic Department Lot, accessible from State and Hoover streets, and SC-7, the Lower Crisler Blue Lot (see note and map below), accessible from Stadium Blvd. and Greene Street. The Athletic lot provides the best access to the softball stadium's main entrance, where the player pass list and will call window are located. From the Crisler lot, there is a path that leads to the entrance behind the main grandstand. A golf cart shuttle will be provided from SC-7 to the ticket booth. Parking is also available in the Glick lot. See below.

Lot SC-7 Overflow Parking
The Stadium Boulevard Reconstruction Project is affecting traffic flow around Crisler Center and the baseball and softball overflow parking in Lot SC-7. Stadium Boulevard is closed from east of Main Street to west of South Industrial Highway, though local access to Crisler Center / Lot SC-7 via Kipke Drive is being maintained from the east on Stadium Boulevard. Stadium Boulevard is expected to reopen in July 2017. Please consult the map below for the revised traffic patterns.
Please visit www.a2gov.org for traffic and construction updates.
