Directions

Bing Tyus Yard is one of the nicest junior college facilities in the state, providing student-athletes with a state-of-the-art experience.

The field boasts a concession stand, full-size dugouts, bullpen area with two mounds per side, sliding pit, air-conditioned press box with sound system, VIP deck, an electronic scoreboard, and a backstop net system that was installed from dugout to dugout in 2011.

Bing Tyus Yard also has professional lighting and seating for approximately 400.

Polk State Baseball features a fully equipped locker room with restroom, showers, washers, dryers,  25 individual lockers, coaches offices, and wifi all connected to the 1B dugout at beautiful Bing Tyus Yard. 

From home plate, the field measures 330 feet along the left-field foul line, 235 feet in the left field power alley, 390 feet to center field, 375 feet to the right field power alley and 330 feet down the right field foul line. The beautiful grass allows for year round play and gives the field a “golf course” appearance.

The field also has a two-batting facility, which includes lighted 70-foot by 12-foot turf cages with net dividers. The facility will allow two players to warm up at a time and can also be used by pitchers. The lights and roof enclosure make this area a great asset for rainy days and dark nights.
