EIGHT CONFERENCE TITLES (1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1984, 1987)

Gary Wright Field

Gary Wright Field serves as the home to the Centre baseball team and is located on Colonel drive beside Farris Stadium and behind Crounse Hall. The field has received numerous upgrades over the past few years and continues to do so.

Lights were installed in the summer of 2005, courtesy of 1964 Centre alum Gary Wright, allowing for the first night games at Centre. New dugouts, a brick backstop from dugout to dugout and an arch entrance-way were also completed in the summer of 2006, improving both the appearance and functionality of the facility. The newly renovated press box was dedicated in 2006 and named after Centre alum Herb McGuire '57.

In 2009, a new scoreboard was installed behind the left field fence. Other installments included a new irrigation system and an outfield warning track. In the summer of 2013, the playing surface was changed from a cool-season grass to a Riviera Bermuda surface giving the Colonels one of the nicest surfaces in the region.

In the summer of 2016, the field was professionally laser-graded. The newest improvements were made in the summer of 2017, including the installment of a professional grade warning track around the entire field and a new windscreen on the outfield fence

 

Borland-Distler Bullpen

Borland-Distler Bullpen is the newest addition to the facilities surrounding Gary Wright Field. The three lane bullpen was completed in August of 2017 and provides a professional quality practice space for the Centre pitching staff. The turfed area also serves as a space for other player development activities.

Fishman Center

Construction of the Fishman Center was completed in 2015, and the facility serves as an indoor practice area for Centre's baseball team.

The 3,000-square-foot facility sits directly behind the scoreboard at Gary Wright Field and allows the Colonels to work on a variety of player development activities. The building includes turf, heat and air, electricity, a top-of-the-line netting system, and two garage doors that can allow for natural light and fresh air.
