The Tigers played their first full season at the modern Moore Field in 2003, and, in 2004, went 19-5 en route to an NCAA Regional appearance.
 
The final phase of the softball complex, completed prior to the 2003 season, added 1,400 seats, a concession area, indoor batting cages and a state-of-the-art press box with two luxury boxes.
 
The Tigers started playing at the facility on April 24, 1998, when they played their first home game at the new on-campus field. The Tigers hosted Georgia, also making it the first SEC game played at the facility. Junior Kim Blair recorded the first hit for the Tigers while senior Ashley Camp drove in Blair for the first run at the new park. 1999 marked the first full season the field was in use. Prior to the new complex, the team played its games at the Auburn city complex.
 
The dream of an on campus facility, which began when softball was added as an intercollegiate, sport started to take form in November of 1996, when the Board of Trustees approved a bid from French and Associates Landscape Architects for the construction of phase one which was intended to include the actual playing surface. French and Associates was responsible for the design and construction of Golden Park in Columbus, Ga., which was host to the 1996 NCAA Women's College World Series and the 1996 Summer Olympic Games Softball competition.
 
The plans for the facility called for it to resemble a scaled down version of the home of Auburn Baseball, Samford Stadium and Hitchcock Field at Plainsman Park. Permanent seating for 1,500 was built in phase two of the project. The Auburn Softball Complex was renamed Jane B. Moore Field in 2002 in honor of Dr. Jane Moore who served more than 20 years as a member of Auburn's Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics. It was dedicated on April 26, 2003.
