Work has begun on a new state-of-the- art facility for the Liberty baseball program. Adjacent to the recently expanded Williams Stadium, home of the Liberty football program, and Osborne Stadium, home of both the Liberty men’s and women’s soccer and track and field programs, the new baseball complex will be the latest dramatic improvement to athletic facilities at Liberty in recent years. Once completed, the stadium will enhance the developing athletics corridor at the university.
The stadium will have chairback seating for 2,500 spectators, with additional seating available on grass areas down each line. The complex will also feature two suites, a club room, a spectator picnic area, and a modern media area. The stadium’s media space will accommodate up to 40 media members, with a 24-seat press box, a television booth, visitor and home radio booths, an operations suite, and storage.
The facility will have the latest turf playing surface installed, along with full-length, major- league type dugouts. Areas for concessions and ticketing will also be included. In addition, the complex will become the operations center of Liberty baseball. The program’s offices and team room will be housed in the facility and overlook the playing field. Four indoor batting tunnels and a weight room will also be included in the project.
The seating area, press areas, and playing field are targeted to be completed for the start of the 2013 season, which begins in February.
