Edgar H. McBane Field
Guilford's baseball team plays and practices on McBane Field, named for one of the school's top baseball players, Edgar McBane '14. He donated much of his time to the baseball program and at one time attended at least one Guilford baseball game for 73 straight years.
McBane Field is located next to Alumni Gym on Guilford's campus. The field has permanent dugouts for home and visiting teams, a new padded backstop, new bleacher seating for spectators, a new state-of-the-art inning-by-inning scoreboard, a brick dust warning track and a new eight-foot vinyl coated fence and windscreen. October 2008 saw more exterior improvements with a new entry plaza and terraced seating behind the backstop.
The infield was reseeded with Bermuda grass in 1992, making it one of the finest playing surfaces in the area. The field measures 320' down the lines, 360' in the alleys and 385' to straightaway center field. In 1998, the bullpens were improved by the construction of two regulation pitching mounds in each bullpen and the infield received a new layer of red clay.
