UNIVERSITY OF WEST FLORIDA

The University of West Florida recently received a $100,000 gift from Members First Credit Union of Florida to name the hitting facility used by the baseball and softball teams. The official check presentation will be held at 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, April 29 at Jim Spooner Field, before the baseball and softball home games. The facility is slated to be named Members First Credit Union Hitting Facility, pending UWF Board of Trustees approval. The hitting facility is the University’s new multi-purpose, 9,100-square foot indoor training center for baseball and softball, which was opened at the beginning of the 2016 season. The facility includes LED lighting that adjusts according to daylight, regulation-height pitching mounds for baseball, four hitting bays for batting practice with protective netting that can be raised or lowered to allow for larger surface usage, and a section designed specifically for softball. –Read More
