"On August 28, 2004, William and Mary officially dedicated Albert-Daly Field, the College’s new grass facility for soccer and lacrosse. Longtime athletic benefactors Jim and Bobbie Ukrop (classes of ‘60 and ‘61, respectively) spearheaded the creation of the new field with a $500,000 challenge grant and suggested the facility honor longtime men’s soccer coach Al Albert (now working with the Tribe Club after coaching for 33 years) and 18-year head women’s soccer coach John Daly, who also served for six years as an assistant men’s coach. As graduates of William and Mary, Jim and Bobbie Ukrop have long been generous supporters of the College and have touched the lives of thousands of students, both in the athletics department and general college community, with their philanthropy. The $1 million natural grass field is adjacent to W&M’s baseball stadium, Plumeri Park, located at the College’s Dillard complex."[1]
