This is John Grisham‘s perspective of Dudy Noble Field, Polk-Dement Stadium and what it means to a Dawg Fan. It can’t be articulated any better than this. It is reprinted with his permission.
It is tempting, in this short space, to talk about people. I could write pages about the young men who’ve played at Dudy Noble. I could go on and on about those electric moments, such as Burke’s grand slam, back to back home runs by Clark and Palmeiro, Raffo’s monstrous shots, Showalter’s .459, B.

Additionally, with the advent of the SEC network, coaches can record game footage of every conference team, and many regional teams that may be on the schedule. This helps to game plan the hitting and pitching philosophy for that particular opponent.
At least that is the way I see it. So if you have a few minutes, check out the article below, and feel free to share your thoughts in the comment area.
