Renovations between the 2000 and 2001 season added the Wayne Patrick Press Box, stadium lightning, dugouts, and concessions.[2] In 2008, further renovations added offices, practice facilities, a weight room, a dugout, a players lounge, and a luxury box.[1]

The venue has hosted five Big South Conference Baseball Tournaments, in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, and 2010. Coastal Carolina has won all of them.[3]
