Jack Turner Stadium

The Bulldog softball team will play its 11th season in its multi-million dollar softball stadium in 2014. The facility holds close to 1,400 fans with additional standing room and features the best amenities possible. The Jack Turner Stadium, named for the late Jack Turner thanks in part to gifts from himself and his son Jimmy Turner, has been chosen to host three NCAA Regionals and one NCAA Super Regional since its inception in 2004.

Both the Georgia and visiting team dugout are connected via tunnel to locker rooms. The Bulldogs' locker room area has all facilities located in it - an athletic training room, players' lounge, game room, locker room, showers, and the coaches' offices and locker room. On the first base side, the visiting team has its locker room and showers along with the umpires' locker room.

A state-of-the-art press box was built as well. The press box has suites for radio, television, and for both Georgia and the visiting team's athletic director.

The stadium is finished with an awning covering the upper section. Georgia's stadium ranks among the nation's best and will continue to be an attractive site for NCAA postseason play for years to come.

Jack Turner Stadium is a part of the Turner Family Sports Complex which is also home to the Georgia Bulldogs soccer team and the Turner Soccer Complex.

Jack Turner

Jack Turner was named to the University of Georgia Foundation Board of Trustees in 1999, where he has served as an active member of the Investment Committee. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1953 with a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Finance and was a member of Chi Psi fraternity, the Air Force ROTC and Gridiron. As an athlete he was a letterman in both baseball and basketball.

Following graduation, he served as a pilot in the U.S. Air Force and after serving his country embarked on a professional career in the financial services industry. Jack was president and retired as chairman of the board of American Funds Distributors, a subsidiary of the American Funds Group, based in Los Angeles in 1995.

What has followed could not be characterized as a "quiet retirement." Jack has dedicated much of his retirement years to the University of Georgia. His service includes:

  • Director of the Georgia Student Educational Fund (the forerunner to today's William C. Hartman Fund)
  • Executive Committee member and director of the National Alumni Association
  • Member of the board of the UGA Athletic Association
  • Chairman of the UGA Athletic Association Finance Committee
  • Chairman of the UGA Athletic Association Facilities Committee
  • Chairman of the Georgia Athletic Association Student Athletic Scholarship Endowment Fund (through which Jack has endowed several scholarships)
  • Founding member and partner in the President's Club
  • Member of the Heritage Society

In addition, Jack founded the Turner Family Foundation, a private organization that supports local charities. In 1999, he was honored by the National Football Hall of Fame for his outstanding support of amateur football and in 2002 was part of the inaugural class of inductees to the UGA Athletic Association's "Circle of Distinction," honoring his service to the organization. The Terry College of Business honored him in 2002 as a "Distinguished Alumni" for his longtime service to the school.
