About the Stadium
Buck Hardee Field at Legion Stadium is the an elite baseball venue in Wilmington, North Carolina, USA. The stadium is part of the multi-purpose sports complex known as Legion Stadium, which is also home to the Wilmington Hammerheads professional soccer team.
The baseball field’s dimensions are 336 ft. down the left field line, 366 ft. to dead center field, and 339 ft. down the right field line.
On September 22, 1981, the baseball field at Legion Stadium was renamed in honor of Buck Hardee, an area American Legion baseball coach. Hardee won five American Legion state championships in his time as coach of Post 10 Legion baseball. Because it is home to the Sharks, the park is more commonly referred to as “The Shark Tank.”
Before the 2014 season, a brick backstop was added to shorten the distance from home plate to the backstop, and protective netting was erected to replace the old chain-link fence. Additionally, a new scoreboard was added in left center field.
