Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex
The Dr. John W. Winkin Sports Complex is home to our baseball, field hockey, and football teams, and is one of the best facilities in New England. The vision of legendary baseball coach, Dr. John Winkin helped transform Husson's baseball field into a multi-sport complex, complete with "Field Turf", dugouts, and press box.
Dr. Winkin got the project off the ground by donating his summer camp to the school and the proceeds jump started the project. His gift inspired long-time friend Harold Alfond to make a $1,000,000 donation to Husson so that "FieldTurf" could be installed as a playing surface, along with a drainage system. The "Harold Alfond Diamond" is one of the best playing surfaces for baseball in New England. There is seating for 3,000 spectators for baseball, football, and field hockey games.
Dr. Winkin served as the head baseball coach at Husson, Colby College, and the University of Maine at Orono. He also served as the Athletic Director at Colby and spent time working for both the Red Sox and the Yankees baseball franchises. Dr. Winkin was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Sadly, Dr. Winkin passed away on July 19, 2014. However, his contributions to athletics and baseball at Husson and the State of Maine will be enjoyed by young people for years.
In the fall of 2015, Winkin Sports Complex under went a facelift with the addition of a press box for football and field hockey.
