SU names baseball stadium in honor of community leader

SALISBURY, Md. – Seagull stadium was renamed after Donnie Williams.

The stadium is home to Salisbury University’s baseball team. This comes after a donor, Linda Slacum made a gift to the school to honor Donnie Williams. Salisbury University President Charles Wight says Williams made contributions to the community and established a foundation that supports educational ventures. President Wight tells us a little more about the honoree:

“Donnie of course played baseball for SU, he graduated in 1975, he was a business student and he established a few successful businesses in this area,” said Charles Wight.

President Wight says this donation will support the physical facility and other parts of Salisbury University’s athletics. May 17th marks exactly one decade after Williams’ passing.

“Donnie was a lifelong baseball fan and also supported SU Athletics. He always spoke so highly of his time at SU and was a member of the President’s Club until his passing. This felt like a perfect fit,” said Linda Slacum.

President Wight tells 47 ABC that there is much excitement surrounding SU’s athletics. The school currently has 4 teams pursuing national championships.
