I did not know this:

On April 3, 2015, the field was named after Dwayne Kamphuis, a legendary fastpitch softball pitcher and financial supporter of Liberty University and the softball program. Kamphuis traveled the world playing in exhibition softball games as part of the renowned “King and His Court” team, headed up by Eddie “The King” Feigner.

Saw the King and his Court as a kid playing on the HS baseball diamond where I later played. He played, If I remember with himself, a catcher, two infielders, one was a first baseman and I think, just onw outfielder. Threw fastballs between his legs, from 2nd base, etc and still struck out most everyone!!

I saw them in Paterson, NJ as a kid. He also threw behind his back. The position players were a catcher first baseman and a shortstop. Although his pitches were illegal by today's rules (hand too far from his body at delivery), his accomplishments were astounding. If I recall correctly, he struck out several major leaguers.
