Bishop Mueller Complex
The Bishop Mueller Complex houses Briar Cliff’s baseball and softball fields. The complex is enclosed and includes an underground sprinkler system, walk-in dugouts, scoreboards, and bleachers.
Dedicated in 1982, the complex was named after Bishop Robert Mueller, a former bishop of the Sioux City Diocese, who had a major interest in athletics. The Bishop Mueller Complex is also home to the baseball and softball teams of Bishop Heelan Catholic High School.
A state-of-the-art team clubhouse was added to the baseball field in 2016, followed by a press box in 2018. The clubhouse includes a locker for each player as well as coaches’ offices, a laundry room, facility shed, and lounge for athletes to play ping pong, work on homework and bond with teammates.
In the fall of 2020, the Chargers broke ground on a project to install turf on the infield of the baseball field. Upon completion, the first game, resulting in a walk-off last inning BCU win, was played in March 2021. The project was entirely funded thanks to the generosity of a number of alumni and friends of Briar Cliff. The project makes BC the first team in the area with infield turf.
