Vanderbilt’s new $12 million athletic facility would make some Division I football programs jealous, and it’s not even a football facility. “It wasn’t meant to be the most luxurious building,” said Vanderbilt baseball coach Tim Corbin, whose new office is fully glassed behind the left-field mesh wall and offers the perfect view of Hawkins Field. “The idea was just to create a home for our kids.” Corbin is sincere. The Commodores’ new three-story, 30,000-square-foot baseball training facility has practical purposes for one of the elite programs in college baseball. There are expansive batting cages, a kitchenette stocked with nutritional supplements, a medical training room, a cardio room and an enlarged weight room. But there are amenities unique to Vanderbilt in the new facility, which opened over the summer. It houses a locker room only for former Vanderbilt players and current professional players.  – Adam Sparks, tennessean.comRead More
