EDMONDS SOFTBALL TRAINING FACILITY

The David and Peggy Edmonds Baseball and Softball Training Facility officially opened on Homecoming in the fall of 2014. The facility includes dirt pitching mounds and moveable batting cages on a pristine turf surface, as well as office space for the coaching staffs.

The project was made possible by a lead gift of $500,000 by Dave Edmonds '80 and a generous donation of $100,000 by Tom Cole '72, both of whom are Kent State baseball alumni. Additionally, there were other gifts between $5,000 and $25,000 in support of the project, including generous donations from former Major League pitchers Chris Carpenter '09 and Matt Guerrier.
