Garrity Field

Garrity Field, where the Cadets play arguably the most audacious of Vermont spring sports—baseball—is named for Coach Joe Garrity ’27. After graduation, the future Norwich athletics director relocated to New York City, where he taught and coached for several years at the Barnard School for Boys. He returned to Norwich in 1943 as a trainer, and became baseball coach and assistant director of athletics when Norwich resumed its varsity athletic program following World War II. In 1955, he became athletic director and served in that position until 1962, at which point he occupied the title of graduate manager of athletics. He coached baseball until his 1967 retirement, upon which he received the inaugural Ralph LaPointe Award by the Vermont Sportswriters and Sportscasters for his contribution to athletics in Vermont.
