Kentucky’s New Baseball Stadium is Coming Together

The new University of Kentucky baseball stadium is taking shape.

After months of construction, the stadium’s skeleton is nearing completion.  The club seating area is a sight to behold.

Set to open in time for the first pitch of the 2019 season, the video is a reminder that there are only six games left at Cliff Hagan Stadium.  There’s a chance the Cats could host a Regional Tournament, but don’t chance it.  Be there this weekend when Kentucky hosts Missouri in an important three-game series, starting Friday night at 7:30.  Come for the baseball, stay for the mini-helmet giveaway and postgame fireworks show.

    Where is the new stadium going? I can’t tell from the picture. I only went to Cliff Hagan a few times while I was at UK but I thought it was a pretty decent stadium.

      It’s right off alumni drive next to the soccer field and down from Kroger field.

    Before they lay down that artificial turf, STOP!! Put in real grass! And while they are laying the sod in the baseball stadium they can rip up that crappy plastic turf at Commonwealth Stadium (never calling it Kroger Field) and put in real grass there too! And how about some green space for tailgating instead of asphalt parking lots. This is the SEC not the damn Sunbelt Conference! Mitch needs to be banned from facility plans/renovations and further embarrassing naming rights deals.

      Why are you against turf? Or is more of an anti Mitch everything position.

      You’re correct, this is not the sunbelt. Unlike the schools in the Sunbelt, Lexington get snow well into baseball season. How do you get snow off the turf? With plows. How do you get snow off the grass? With shovels. Also when it comes to drainage and saving money on field maintenance, turf is a no brainer.
