ABOUT CAROLINA SOFTBALL STADIUM AT BECKHAM FIELD
In the spring of 2013, South Carolina softball got a new home at a familiar site with a new facility built on the same plot of land that has hosted the Gamecocks since at least 1983. Carolina Softball Stadium at Beckham Field raised the seating capacity to over 1,200, brought a new locker room and indoor hitting facility to the Gamecocks and added a new elevated press box and suites to the site. Construction began in early June 2012 and finished during summer 2013. The physical address for the stadium is 1318 Heyward Street, Columbia, SC 29208.
