Sullivan Field

The Wolfpack play their home games on beautiful Sullivan Field. Sullivan Field is located on the campus of Copiah-Lincoln Community College. The immaculate kept diamond is in playing shape at all times of the year. College and high school games are played on Sullivan Field during the school year. Summer finds the field hosting Co-Lin Baseball Camps, American Legion games and Boys State.

The turf on the playing surface is bermuda. During the playing season it is overseeded with a perennial ryegrass. The cutting heights vary during the course of the year, but it is always cut like a carpet. A sand and clay mixture makeup the dirt area of the infield. It is topdressed with Crimson Stone to give it a perfect playing surface.

Dimensions of Sullivan Field are 330 down the left field line, 335 down the right field line and 385 to center field. The replacement of the 8’ wooden outfield wall was completed prior to the 2009 season.

Lighting at the park is second to none. All lights are positioned on towering 90’ poles that easily light up the playing area for excellent action for the players and fans. The 40’ inning-by-inning scoreboard was installed in 1999.

Enclosed bullpens can be found on the visitors and home team sides of the field. Each pen has a double pitching mound and catchers boxes.

The stadium at Sullivan Field will let fans enjoy a baseball game with comfort, whether in stadium seats or in lawn chairs. The grandstand area behind home plate will seat 500 while the bleachers down the third base line will seat 100. Plenty of grassy areas are also available for lawn chairs and blankets.

Georgia-Pacific and Asa Hardison were behind the completion of the modern press box facility at Sullivan Field. It is completely heated and cooled as well as designed with maximum auditory comforts. Media, radio crews and press box personnel have room and comfort to cover Wolfpack games.

Dennis White Press Box

In 2007, the press box was dedicated in honor of Dennis Ray White of Wesson. White was a volunteer with the Co-Lin baseball and football programs for 13 years. He was the public address announcer, filmed games, kept score, lined off the field, and did other jobs to assist the baseball program. White passed away from a lengthy illness in December of 2005.

Baseball Fieldhouse

The baseball field house, which was completed in the fall of 2006, includes coaches’ offices, a spacious locker room and shower facility as well as an indoor hitting facility and storage area. The field house was a joint project with the college and Georgia-Pacific.

Restroom and concession facilities are located behind the third base side of the field. These facilities were built in order to let everyone enjoy their visit to Sullivan Field a little more.

Copiah-Lincoln Community College hopes you enjoy your visit to Sullivan Field and our campus.
