Gage Center, a 12-story dual high-rise complex constructed in two stages, takes its name from George M. Gage, principal of the then-Second State Normal School at Mankato when it was established in 1868. Gage's "A" tower--that to the east--was completed in 1965. The "B" tower was completed in 1966. In fall of 1994, Mankato State opened Maverick Hall (in the former Gage B Tower), a pilot program intended to enhance first-year students' success in college through integrated learning, living and social experiences on campus.

This parking lot also accomodates parking for the Observatories, Women's Soccer, Women's Softball and Intramurals.

MSU Softball's home complex, dubbed The Diamond at Gage Towers, was officially opened when the Mavericks took the field against Winona State on April 7 of 1998.

Repleat with state-of-the-art drainage system, spectator seating, a media box, restroom facilities and dugouts made of Kasota stone, a native stone of south central Minnesota, "The Diamond" gives MSU one of the top on-campus softball facilities in the country.

The Diamond at Gage Towers, the first permanent home of MSU softball, is situated in the same complex as The Pitch at Gage Towers, the home of MSU's women's soccer program.

Women's Soccer "The Pitch at Gage Towers" played host to a pair of contests in the 1997 season and has a permanent seating arrangement and a state-of-the-art scoreboard. Located on the south side of campus and placed next to MSU's new softball field.
