The 2023 Dolphin baseball season is kicking off with the building of a new halo, as per former Coach Clayton’s wishes. The purpose of the Halo is to reduce the impacts of playing many games on the grass. Randy Renfroe, former head coach worked to make Clayton’s dream a reality. Work on the field started in early 2023 after getting approval from then head coach, Coach Clayton, and the Gulf Breeze High School baseball team booster club.
The team worked used local resources to ensure that the halo was the exact shape and size that it needed to be. After that, wooden boards were used to keep the shape of the halo until it was ready to be filled with concrete by volunteers and members of the team. Renfroe has also secured an artificial turf donation and hopes to have the dolphins playing on turf someday in the near future.
