  • Massachusetts Maritime Breaks Ground On Artificial Turf Installation Project At Commodore Hendy Field
    August 16, 2017
    Massachusetts Maritime officially broke ground late last week on the installation of an artificial turf surface at Commodore Hendy Field, the home of Buccaneer baseball. Academy President Admiral Francis X. McDonald and Director of Athletics Garin Veris were joined by fellow Buccaneer vice presidents, administrators and staff members at a special groundbreaking ceremony last Thursday. The project will begin in earnest this week and is expected to be completed by early November. “The unprecedented growth of the Academy in the last decade has created wonderful opportunities for expansion of our physical plant, and I am pleased that we will be able to offer our cadets with more space for intercollegiate and intramural competition,” McDonald said of the project. “The entire Massachusetts Maritime community will benefit greatly by the turf installation.” “Hendy Field is one of the most bucolic fields in all of college baseball, and providing our student-athletes with opportunities for increased home competition dates without the worry of inclement weather is something that provides a definite boost to our program,” Veris said. “The addition of more practice space for our intercollegiate teams and more competitive space for our intramural and club programs will provide a long term benefits for the Academy going forward.” To view the progress of the artificial turf installation at Commodore Hendy Field throughout the fall, please visit: https://www.maritime.edu/sites/all/themes/mma/webcams/gym.swf.
