Moving Towards A Facility That Matches The Team That Plays On It

There is some great news surrounding JSU Softball. Thanks in large part to the generosity of JD Hess, the Calhoun County Commission and Carmen Industries, the softball field is improving in the following ways:

*There is a new entrance with brick columns that will have black iron archway with "GAMECOCKS" signage.

*There will be an illuminated wall of honor at the entrance commemorating players that have received various honors. Special thanks to Carmen Industries for the plaques and the metal archway

*The visitors dugout has been redone with a new brick facade.

*There is new black fencing down the right and left field lines.

*There is a new brick storage building beside the batting cage.

*The bathrooms have been cleaned up with new tile flooring.

*A new artificial turf pitching bullpen with 2 pitching lanes is being installed. It has cleaned it up and we really appreciate it. JD Hess and the County Commission were a big part of this improvement. Carmin Industries in Jacksonville are helping us the the wall of honor plaques and all the metal lettering and arch way.

The work is not done however. To truly move to an elite facility, the Gamecocks need to install sunken dugouts. Please contact JSU to find out how you can donate to this worthy cause.
