Campaign for Gaucho Park

The beauty of UCSB and Santa Barbara should be showcased within it's venues. Baseball “parks” are better at storytelling than “stadiums” and the future place for Santa Barbara to enjoy baseball, day and night, will be Gaucho Park at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium. A place where the long history of Gauchos players, generous donors and community pride will be told.

The estimated $1.8 million project to enhance the diamond for baseball in Santa Barbara is broken into two phases. Phase One is the park/plaza entrance ($600,000), which will include:

  • Plaza with ticket and concessions booths, landscaping and paved entry (donation secured)
  • “Gino’s Corner” – the large baseball in place will pay tribute to generous life of Gino Filippin. ($25,000 donation)
  • “Big Leaguers Lane” – wall honoring the long history of UCSB’s pros by team. ($60,000 donation)
  • “Hammerhead Wall” – the story of the infamous students who supported their Gauchos during the 80’s and 90’s. ($20,000 donation)
  • ADA restrooms ($300,000 donation) 

Phase Two is a complete field upgrade ($500,000) and lighting system for the hosting of night games ($700,000).
