University of Florida Breaks Ground for New Baseball Stadium
The University of Florida held a groundbreaking ceremony this month for a new baseball stadium, set to host the Gators in 2021. The new park will cost $65 million and expects to be completed in June of 2020.
The park will feature a 360-degree open concourse with added shade around the park. The permanent seating will change from 2,400 to more than 4,000. Grass berms and other non-traditional seating will also be available, which the university hopes will help create a more social atmosphere.
The new park will be located on the southwest corner of campus, while the current stadium will be turned into a football training center.
