Florida breaks ground on new Baseball Stadium (add'l renderings added)
Someone posted a thread about our baseball stadium a week or so ago, so here is an update.

quote:

On a picture-perfect day for baseball — sunny, breezy and warm — the University of Florida broke ground on a new $65-million baseball stadium Friday. The new stadium will be ready for play at the start of the 2021 season.

It will feature a 360-degree open concourse, shade structures for fans, grass berms and non-traditional seating that will allow for capacity of more than 7,000, chairback permanent seating, high-definition video and sound, enhanced concession space and food options and prominent entry gates.

There also will be modern student-athlete and staff amenities, including a private nutrition area and team lounge, film/meeting room and expanded locker room, indoor pitching and batting cages and enhanced training and rehabilitation area.

It really does boggle my mind that a baseball team that is so successful for the past ~10 years has such a pathetic following.
And on top of that, some of the best talent in the nation want to go play there, instead of in stadiums where 10,000 fans want to watch you play.

Kudos to O'Sullivan and his staff for reeling those guys in, but every year I think the same thing.

Hopefully this new stadium changes the perspective in Gainesville...that baseball team has earned it

It's almost like college baseball isn't a major sport...

Floridians don’t care about baseball. Look at their MLB franchises

Or Florida is a travel-to state with no real fanbase that can't even support their pro teams.

That’s awesome—I’m excited for y’all!
New facilities are big fun.
And new baseball facilities are sexy as heck.
Looking forward to watching the progression!

Congrats to gator fans. I have met a few of them in Hoover every year and they are always good people.

And yet they still get the job done, unlike Arkansas.

If Florida plays a game but no one was there to see it, was there actually a game played?

I agree. The fan support they've received for their success recently is horrid.

The stadium is going to be really nice.

Can't wait.

My son and I tolerate heat stroke down there several times a year. The new stadium will help big time with that.

Now, if we could only sell beer.

The language is English, road. Also it's "what".
