David F. Couch Ballpark



In February 2016, Wake Forest Baseball Park had been named David F. Couch Ballpark in honor of former baseball player David Couch (’84). A longtime supporter of Wake Forest Athletics and the baseball program, Couch made the lead gift toward the new $14 million Player Development Center, which is currently under construction.

Along the third-base line, the 41,000-square foot facility will include a team locker room, lounge, training room, equipment room, video conference room, team meeting room, a full kitchen, coaches offices, professional players locker space, a Wake Forest Baseball Heritage area and an indoor batting facility.

Construction of the initial phase is expected to be complete in January 2017. Stadium capacity will be 3,184 during the renovation year before increasing to 3,823 when construction is complete.

The David F. Couch Ballpark is available for concerts and other special events. To request more information or to discuss your particular event needs, please contact: Jami Dawson at (336) 758-5588 | dawsonjd@wfu.edu
