CCU Softball Field
The Coastal Carolina Softball Field has given the Chanticleers a distinct home field advantage over the years and continues to be one of the top playing surfaces in the Big South and in the area. The Coastal softball program has won over 60 percent of its home contests on the field and have played host to perennial national powers Illinois, LSU, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina, Kansas, DePaul, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Missouri, Michigan State and Georgia Tech.
The field is one of the best in the region with the outfield fence dimensions 200 feet in left, center and right field.
In 1999, the facility got the first of many updates with the addition of lights to the field. The CCU Softball Field still remains as one of three facilities in the Big South that have lights.
The second upgrade to the facility came in 2001-2002 when new brick dugouts and a press box were added. The dugouts are ground level and provide storage on each end. The press box is climate-controlled and provides a great view of the entire field.
In 2005, Coastal added permanent teal seats with backs for more comfort to enjoy the game. The stands hold approximately 300 people.
Prior to the 2008 season, a Daktronics scoreboard was unveiled behind the right field fence that features inning-by-inning score lines, as well as a full functioning message board.
The facility also features three batting cages for practice and warm up, two on the third base side and one on the first base side.
