These guys within the past 6 Months have re turfed their entire field, Are in the process of redoing the stands behind home plate, and who knows what else. one thing I hope the dont/havent changed is the stands in right field.
#5 East Central (Mississippi)
Yet another field in Mississippi. And yet other field getting some work done on it. From what i can find they are adding turf, updating the stands and press box among a few other things.
#4 LSU- Eunice (Louisiana)-Bengal Stadium
Built in 1999 the Defending National Champs home is Amazing. Lights were added in 2006. With bullpen on both sides, a press box, Brick Dugouts. To add to it they have covered batting cages with lights that can be used at any hour.

Besides being the home for Wake tech it is also the home of the Holly Springs Salamanders of the Coastal Plain League since 2015. Seats Roughly 1800, this fully turf field can be played on year round. With Concessions, a press box, State of the art Scoreboard.
#2 Jones County (Mississippi)-Community Bank Park “The Bank”
You know there must be something in the water out there in Mississippi because this is the 7th school from there on this list. But for good reason. With seats around the back stop this is a great place to watch a game any day. With what looks like a fairly impressive press box, even the announcers will have a good time. This place sits about 500 people.
#1 Mississippi Gulf Coast (Mississippi)-Ken “Curly” Farris Field
Ok Mississippi we get it you guys like JuCo Baseball. The original field was built-in the same spot in 1973 and took its current name in 1990. Just this past year they opened this new renovated field. With new grass and dirt and a new Turf home plate. With seats for roughly 500 with 65 of those seats having backs to them better get their first. To go with it they have an indoor facility that was built in 2011 with their locker rooms, offices and of course an indoor with 4 batting/pitching tunnels. which can all be picked up to practice inside if need be.
