Gonzaga's new home beginning in 2007, Patterson Baseball Complex and Washington Trust Field returned baseball to the Bulldog campus for the first time since 2003. The first game in the new, state-of-the-art lighted facility, was March 15, 2007, the first night game was played April 17, 2007, and the dedication game was played April 20, 2007. The complex is named after the family of Michael Patterson, former chairman of the Board of Trustees, while Pete Stanton and Washington Trust Bank in Spokane were also a major contributor to the project.

Mike Patterson has three different degrees from three very different universities. Of Gonzaga, Notre Dame and New York University, Gonzaga conjures up the fondest memories for him.

"Gonzaga had that character and feeling of engagement that I didn't feel at the other universities," Patterson said. "I felt more connected with the Gonzaga spirit."

The Spokane native majored in political science and graduated in 1969 with a bachelor of arts. He then went on to receive his law degree at Notre Dame and his master's of law at NYU. Thirty years after graduating, Patterson reconnected with his alma mater serving on Gonzaga's Board of Trustees. Starting in 1999, Patterson not only served on the board, but he also served as the chairperson for three years.

Besides loving his Gonzaga family, Patterson also has an affinity for the game of baseball. The love of the game transcends generations, Patterson says, whose 97-year-old father had the honor of meeting Babe Ruth when the legendary athlete visited Gonzaga Prep many years ago.

"I love the sport," Patterson said. "I've played it, coached it, and I felt that Gonzaga has always had a great baseball program."

When the opportunity arose to fund a new baseball facility, Patterson volunteered right away.

"I wanted to give back in a way that I was passionate," he said. "I'm proud to be a graduate and proud to be a part of the Gonzaga family. Gonzaga is blessed with many, many generous alumni and supporters."
