For 43 years as softball coach at Crescent High School, Coach Gary Adams built a legacy on the foundation of individual players working as a team to be “Champions.” In 1995, he also led the community in a joint effort to raise over $50,000 to build a “Field of Dreams” at the high school. Upon completion of the field, the School Board approved a proclamation at the September 11, 1995 meeting to name the new softball field at Crescent High School the Gary D. Adams Field.
When Coach Adams retired from coaching, he made one request that further emphasized his belief in a team effort. He asked that the field that bears his name be changed to include his wife. At the June 10, 2019, Anderson District Three Board of Trustees meeting, the Board unanimously approved his request to rename the field, Gary and Kathy Adams Field, to recognize the team that has left a lasting impact on our school, our district, and our community. A new scoreboard along with the new name will be erected at the Gary and Kathy Adams field in the fall of 2019.
