Central Softball Facility to be named Gerry Pinkston Stadium after the Hall of Fame Coach and former professor, Gerry Pinkston, Ed.D. Pinkston coached Central from 1976-1997 and won 455 games along the way.

"Overwhelming," Pinkston said about having her name put on the stadium.

"I had a dream job," she continued. "To be able to teach and coach a long time. You don't think about things like this. It certainly wasn't anything I expected. It's such an honor. It really honors all of the players that have played here and made the program what it is."
