  • Curious said,

    Why is the tournament being played at Grimsley High School this year instead of Stoner White? As far as I can remember its always been at Stoner White. A lot of history and tradition there.

  • 77 Hornet said,

    War Memorial is where they played a few years ago.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Burlington Williams beat Dudley 7-5 to claim the Colt Tournament Title…

    From what I heard from one source the other night and it was a good source at that, the Grimsley field is in better shape right now than the field at Stoner-White…

    Gary Flynn has worked his tail off and has gotten that Grimsley Whirlie field in great shape…So if you can play on the better of the two fields and for the sake of the players, you want to give them the best, you take the field at Grimsley this year and that is a credit to the work turned in by Gary Flynn…

    Not a slap back at Stoner-White, but giving credit where the credit is due to, Gary Flynn, over at Grimsley….That is the word is was hearing the other evening…

    They did play the Zone at War Memorial in the past, I remember watching games there, but there is concern about their field at WMS right now, possible soil concerns that must be corrected…

  • Andy Durham said,

    More details from what I was able to dig and you to remember that War Memorial Stadium is now solely owned and operated by N.C. A&T State University….

    More on this year’s move to Grimsley for the East Zone Tournament….

    The reason for the move is that pony officials went to the field and the field did not meet zone tournament requirements.
    Conditions at Stoner-White Stadium:
    1. No concession stand – working
    2. The condition of the field did not meet pony standards.
    The field is in rough condition with baselines and pitching mound.
    This will be the first the Zone tournament is not played at a city of Greensboro complex.

  • Wow!! said,

    What’s the Parks and Rec dept been doing? Must be a budget problem with the City. Hate to see stoner white go downhill like that. I played there in the 80s and the City has always kept it up, until recently.

  • Chris Eggers said,

    You won’t find a much better field than Grimsley High School and that is all due to the hard work Coach Flynn has and continues to put on that field. Stoner-White isn’t close to Grimsley in terms of field quality.

  • NWGHS fan said,

    I would be interested in hearing what it is that enables those with the superior fields to be better than the others. Talking about the differences in the HS fields, not compared to Stoner-White, Memorial or other city/county owned sites.

    Is it simply spending the time to do the work and having the money to pay for dirt, equipment, etc.? Or, is it having more “specialized” knowledge of what needs to be done? If it’s mostly an issue of spending time working on the field, who is doing this work at the superior sites? Boosters, players, coaches?

  • George said,

    It comes from the coaches. They give up personal time to work on the fields.

  • Jeff G. said,

    You have to give the games up to Grimsley. They have the best baseball field in the county right now. The Colt Games have to be at Grimsley.

  • ???? said,

    You might want to take a look at Northeast Guilford when you speak of “best” in county…no disrespect to Grimsley. Coach White does a great job and has NE’s field recognized every year as 1 of best state wide.

  • NWGHS fan said,

    Yeah, the NE field is beautiful. Theirs, and N Davidson stand out to me as the nicest HS fields I’ve seen.

  • Ted said,

    If we took a vote, I bet you Grimsley would win “Best Baseball Field in Greensboro”. They are that good right now. It is the best field and I am glad the Colts and PONY baseball chose to play there next week. Thank-you Grimsley and let’s close out this debate right here, Grimsley has the #1 baseball field.

    Thank-you Gary Flynn for all the work you have done on that field at Grimsley.

  • Tedneedstogetoutmore said,

    Let it be said….let it be heard…”Ted” says Grimsley has best field!!!
    I’m sure everybody at Grimsley agrees….and if there is anything Grimsley fans know…it’s Baseball.
