Gary Wright Field at Fishman Park

The newly built complex serves as the new home for the Centre Baseball team, and is arguably one of the best Division III facilities in the nation. The playing field is comprised of turf, including the mound and bullpens, which enhances the experiences when training and playing for players. The field also features new dugouts, an ADA accessible press-box, LED lighting, and a new video display and scoreboard. The field was constructed to sit below ground level and is surrounded with redesigned seating and spectator areas for exceptional sight-lines.
