Here's the latest info... 04-cheers
WVU Baseball Stadium Does Not Compare to Big 12 Brothers
Quote:One look at Hawley Field and it is easy to see that WVU does not have a state of the art baseball stadium. It has not needed one until now.

West Virginia University Athletic Director told WVi last week that he does not intend for any sport at WVU to "be a door mat." In other words, he does not plan to watch any WVU sports team to be satisfied with mediocrity.

Wife and I plan to take in WVU game at Oregon State 3/9/12 and Oklahoma & Oregon in twin bill 3/10/12 in Eugene. Even thou it's right up the road I have never seen OSU Goss field, but heard it is nice. It will be nice when they get their own home they can be proud of.

Oregon State and Oregon both have very nice baseball facilities.

Good info, and really backs up why WVU needs to get a new place (or significantly renovated place) to play.

Oklahoma's stadium is kind of a joke for a team with national titles and a decent number of CWS appearances. I guess they only care about football in Norman.

Right, PK park is shared with the Eugene Emeralds A team. I remember going to some games at their old stadium back in the early 70's when they were the AAA affiliate of the Phillies. PK along with Penn State's baseball field could be models to emulate for the new WVU field. Hope some of the decision makers make this road trip.

I hope they play some games in princeton next year. I can say I will be to every game as Ive wanted to watch college baseball for years but am only able to watch on tv as its almost a 5 hours drive to morgantown for me. Princeton would be great for any big 12 team as it has a very good stadium. Bluefield Ill go to too but stadium is nowhere near as nice.

Most of the games will probably be in Charleston, unless there's a scheduling conflict. The biggest alumni base is Charleston...
