PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College President Dr. Mary S. Graham will cut the ribbon at the school's new baseball stadium Wednesday. The ceremony begins at 1:30 p.m.
The 476-seat stadium features 66 chairback seats under a cantilever roof. Construction started in September 2015 and the first game was played there March 4.
The baseball field moved to its current location on the Perkinston Campus in 1973. It was named Ken "Curly" Farris Field after the legendary MGCCC coach. He won 743 games and 13 state championships during his 27 seasons. Farris never had a losing season.
