Nike Baseball Camps Guilford College

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.

    He will be back next year.​​

    July 28, 2018: Joey said the best part of camp was the one on one coaching he got while at camp to improve on his baseball skills. It’s fun and you learn to be a better player. This is my son’s third year attending this camp and his first year as an over night camper. Great experience, great coaches, great facilities. Special thanks to Coach Akers, Coach Black and the Guilford baseball team.

    Great coaches

    July 27, 2017: My son enjoyed the live games but especially appreciated the time given by Coach Aker and Matos with helping him with his defensive play. The addition of two older seasoned coaches to the two I already mentioned was great. This was our second year and we will be back next year for sure.
