SILVER DIAMOND BASEBALL COMPLEX
The Silver Diamond Baseball Complex was built through the support and generosity of Allen and June Silver of Morristown, Tenn. with recentrenovations coming in the winter of 2015 courtesy of the Silvers, Allen and Phyllis Morgan and a long line of former baseball players.
The complex was built in 1990 with ceremonies celebrated on May 2, 1990, and is one of the most complete baseball facilities in the nation. Itincludes a full size locker room, laundry area, kitchen, coaches’ offices and a mulit-purpose room which can be used for meetings, recreation andsocializing. Additionally, there is a nine inning scoreboard, covered batting cages with lights and a state of the art sound system.
The locker room is located at field level and opens into the Carson-Newman dugout giving the players the feel of a Major League Baseball player.Inside of the locker room, each player has a state-of-the-art locker with ample space to store each piece of gear.
On the second floor of the clubhouse is a player lounge and the coaches’ offices. Once there, players can spend time on brand new couches andfurniture and watch a brand new television with a complete kitchen available nearby. On the back portion of the facility players can get someping pong games in or overlook the diamond and work on homework.
Next to the clubhouse is the Bobby Wilson indoor facility named for the coach of the 1965 NAIA National Champions. There is plenty of spacefor two full-service batting cages and a spot for pitchers to work with weights and other stretching devices 365 days a year.
Located directly behind home plate, there is a two-level press box capable of accomdating appromixately 15 media represntatives with terrificsightlines in any spot a person sits.
The ballpark received brand new blue individual seats in 2015 that can seat over 100 people with space on the lower level of the facility to allowfans an intimate expereience. Fans can also bring a blanket or lawn chair and pop a squat down the first-base line in the grass in the shade ofBurke-Tarr Stadium.
On the day the stadium was dedicated, the son of the Silvers, Chad, hit a home run as the Eagles concluded their first season in the new digs witha 9-6 victory over Tennessee Wesleyan.
