Bubber Adams Baseball Complex and Bobby Hendley Field
Coach Adams was Stratford's baseball coach for 33 years. During his time with the Eagle baseball team, he had a 543-158 record with nine state championships and was state runner-up four times. He was also selected by his peers as GISA Coach of the Year seven times. Thirty-six of his players received college scholarships while six players were drafted by major league organizations. Coach Adams continues to serve Stratford as Director of Alumni Affairs. Upon his retirement as Stratford baseball coach in 2001, the Stratford baseball complex was named in his honor.
Coach Bobby Hendley was Coach Adams' assistant from 1983-2001. He spent time in the Major Leagues with Milwaukee, San Francisco and Chicago. Hendley is probably best known for his pitching dual with Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax in a 1965 game in which Hendley threw a one-hitter and Koufax threw a no-hitter.
