Features

The Troy Softball Complex underwent a $3-million renovation project prior to the 2014 season. The project included leveling the softball field to improve site lines, an updated press box that included new offices, a media area with press area, and an expanded concessions area. New officials locker rooms were also added to the facility. The project also featured the addition of the 8,000 square-foot Dodds Center, a state-of-the-art training and housing facility for players and coaches.

Additionally, the playing surface was replaced and ProGrass artificial turf was installed in the outfield and an underground water drainage system was installed. The original basic scoreboard was replaced with a Daktronics Full-Box LED scoreboard with the Troy Athletics logo. The seating areas received an upgrade as well, replacing the original metal erector stand bleachers with a permanent grandstand that features 120 chair-back seats and 680 bench-back seats. Because of this, the original seating capacity expanded from 500 seats to 800 seats. A party deck was also constructed over the visitor's dugout. [1]

It was named in honor of Mike and Cindy Dodds for their devotion to Troy University athletics. [2]
