Henley Field


Henley Field was initially built in 1922 as an effort to draw professional baseball teams to train in the area and was later named after Clare "Doc" Henley, President of the Lakeland Baseball Club, who helped bring the Detroit Tigers to Lakeland for spring training. In 2013, the Jenkins Clubhouse was added and named after David Jenkins, the son of George Jenkins, the owner of the San Francisco Giants, and a supporter of Florida Southern's Athletics programs. In 2015, Florida Southern College purchased the field to officially make it their own after the Baseball team had been playing there for over 50 years. In 2017, the stadium itself was dedicated as the John Rodda Stadium in memory of Trustee John Rodda, a longtime supporter of Mocs Baseball and former volunteer Baseball coach.
