Baum Expansion
« on: August 30, 2018, 12:02:56 pm »

Email from Hunter Yurachek states:

Quote
While Baum Stadium is unrivaled in beauty and the gameday atmosphere created by the passionate support of the Razorback Nation, many of the team areas utilized by our student-athletes and coaches every day, have not substantially changed since the stadium was built in 1996. A new approximately 40,000+ square foot baseball clubhouse facility, to be built beyond the right field wall on the southwest corner of Baum Stadium, will address those deficiencies providing our student-athletes with an improved and expanded locker room, team room, weight room, training room, meeting rooms, nutrition space, player and pitching development spaces and in-venue batting cages. Initial plans for the facility are to also offer fans the opportunity to enjoy their gameday at Baum Stadium from a new and unique Loge Box experience overlooking the right field bullpen.

Let's get this expansion rolling.  We built the NEZ for football - now it's time for us donors and season ticket holders to step up and keep Baum on top.

This is what we are competing against:

Kentucky:


Mississippi State:


Oklahoma State:

Baum currently has a design that flows. That hulking wall of glass does not flow.

Iím all for this expansion but not if thatís the final product.

Better call Hunter and tell him you do NOT approve before they start digging in the dirt!

Track Operations Center going on the lawn of Bud Walton Arena? Interesting. All of these facilities are needed.

Log rolling should be a summer Olympic event.

Long past due. Glad to know that the AD knows we need to improve our baseball facilities.

This month we will be presenting to the Board of Trustees our recommendation for the next steps on three facilities impacting our baseball and menís and womenís track and field programs. As with all of our facilities and operations, the Baum Stadium Baseball Clubhouse, the Randal Tyson Track Center Expansion and the John McDonnell Field High Performance Center will be financed without the use of state or university funds or any student fees. In the coming weeks, we hope to have more exciting news to announce regarding these projects.

I hope we get this project rolling so we can keep this accolade true:

Saw on Twitter the other day where they are planning on having a smaller extra locker room that will be for former players to use in the offseason when they are training for pro ball. Thought that was a pretty cool idea and should be a big hit and something that is talked about quite a bit on TV broadcasts.

Great news. DVH spoke at length this week about the new stadium. The design above sounds like it will NOT be the final product, and it sounds like he didn't love it himself. He said several things to this effect including...

"Yeah, those pictures we all saw...the firm that drew that, they didn't get the contract. They're not even the ones doing it"
"I thought the first look was probably a little too modern...so yeah, we tweaked it agiain... we're gonna keep working on that"
"We want the new expansion to fit in with the ballpark we have, we want it to look like it was built at the same time."

Among several other quotes to that effect.

Typing and not thinking.....I'm pretty sure when we signed up on HV, that that was the #1 rule we all had to abide by.
