JOHN KURTZ FIELD
The Bobcat baseball team competes at John Kurtz Field at the Peeler Athletic Complex. Located minutes from the Georgia College main campus, the Peeler complex underwent a major facelift in 1992 with the addition of box seats and the renovation of the backstop for the baseball field. The softball field was built in 1990 complete with a scoreboard and bleachers. In 1996 lights were added to both parks, and the complex was dedicated to Georgia College Hall of Famer Dr. J. Michael Peeler, the former athletics director at Georgia College. The baseball field was renamed in honor of fellow Georgia College Hall of Famer John Kurtz, the former coach who put Georgia College baseball on the map. New dugouts were constructed in 2005. A new 10-foot outfield wall went up for the 2008 season, giving the park a decidedly professional feel. Kurtz Field is a fan-friendly environment allowing fans to enjoy the game from seat-back chairs behind home plate, or a picnic style atmosphere on the third base hill.
