While the WSU baseball team has been playing at the site since 1993, Nischwitz Stadium became a reality in 2000. It was dedicated on April 12, 2000, as Wright State hosted the Indiana Hoosiers. The facility is named for Ron Nischwitz, who coached the Raiders for 30 years, and for his son, Gregg, who played for WSU for one season before losing his life in a construction accident in 1980.

The facility features chair-back seating for 750, lights, heated dugouts, locker rooms, a weight room and a training facility. In 2012, a FieldTurf playing surface was installed and a new press box was added.

Nischwitz Stadium, which measures 330 down each line, 377 to the gaps and 400 to straight-away center, has hosted numerous amateur games and tournaments over the years, including the 2006 and 2011 Horizon League Tournaments.
