Field dedication hits home run

On Saturday, Sept. 21, alumni from around the country, university administration, community members and softball fans came together to celebrate the dedication of the Dianne Baker Softball Field. A generous donation by alumna Dianne Baker led to a renovation of the current field, including a new sound system and a large screen digital, video capable scoreboard. Future enhancements will include new reserved seating, all seating will be covered, and a new press box. After a celebration including a flash mob dance by hundreds of Coach Baker’s players, a two-game scrimmage was held between the TWU Pioneers and UT Tyler.

The endowment established by Dianne Baker creates a legacy that will serve to maintain the softball field in future years giving student softball players and the softball program at TWU a high-quality facility to enhance their game.
