Trust me, I'm on pins and needles waiting for that announcement. It can't come soon enough.

Looking out from the former premium club area toward former home plate. Dugouts have been removed, more precast sections have been removed, and individual seat removal continues.

Maybe they can still play the spring game there.

That would be incredible, but seeing as the spring game is scheduled for April 15th (3.5 weeks from today) I think that is 100% off the table. The grass and dirt has been driven over by trucks and construction equipment for the past couple weeks and is in really rough shape. Not to mention the seating bowl is halfway disassembled at the moment.

Most likely sites right now are our soccer stadium or one of the local HS football stadiums. We should know in the next week or so. They said they're working on finalizing the location, which would lead me to believe it's an off-campus venue.

I'm waiting on that announcement too. Is USA going to be the only team left that doesn't have an OOC stadium in the sunbelt?

Looks like great progress. Question, could the right field seats be all taken out to make it look less like a baseball stadium (or maybe this is already in the plans...don't know).

See the renderings. Part of the plan.

The overhead shot really puts it in perspective.
