For my $.02, they can add anyone's name who contributes $5 million to the program. It can end up looking like some royal Prince or Princesses name-10 name's long. The magic of our stadium is not in the name.

Fans aren’t going to call it Baum-Walker anyway.

Too bad they’ll waste a lot of money replacing all that signage, though. How many thousand you reckon it’ll cost to swap the sign on top of the scoreboard and the rear of the batter’s eye?

A lot less than what the Walkers have contributed!

Appreciate the Walker's support immensely. If Baum wasn't such a perfect, almost magical name for our stadium--especially with all the success we have had there--I wouldn't even think twice about it. It was almost iconic in my mind so I don't love the new name but I have no problem with it happening given all the Walker's support.

The cost will not even be a fraction of a rounding error of what the Walker family has donated to the University of Arkansas over the years.

I'll slip up and call it "Baum" Stadium more often than not for a long time, but will do my best to call it "Baum-Walker". I like to think if I was as well off as the Walker family that I'd be as generous as them.

Baum-Walker Stadium is about the same to say was Bud Walton Arena. If "Walker" had a longer European name then we may have a tougher time settling on what to say.

I will try to reference Baum Walker out of respect for the Walker’s significant financial report. Hope no one makes some nickname that sticks because we don’t want to ever lose Baum

Google Maps already says Baum-Walker. I think some of you are making a bigger deal out of this than it is. Most people will say Baum still for a while.
