Ole Miss’ latest renovations to Oxford-University Stadium are on track by all accounts and will be finished in April of this year. The $20 million project is part of the Forward Together campaign and this particular project is geared more towards the student athletes. The newly-erected 42,000 square foot baseball building is the bulk of the project and the part that will benefit the players the most. It will provide a new locker room, equipment room, hitting and pitching tunnels, new weight room, a lounge, a nutrition center and a new film room. Swingle expects the hitting and pitching tunnels to be completed before the Rebels’ first game on February 16. The 3,200-foot dugout club should also be ready by the first game. That portion of the project will add 330 seats behind home plate with a suite-like area below the seats, similar to the lower-portion of the south end zone at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Upon the new baseball building’s completion on the first-base side of the stadium, roughly 170+ more seats will be added atop the building as a part of the roof top plaza. That seating will primarily consist of letterwinners. -Jim Holder, WTVA, Read More
