    2500 is plenty of seating for us. We can easily seat 3000+ in the current area. USM stadium sucks!

    Re: Where should LaTech rebuild baseball stadium

    3,000 permanent is the optimum number

    That’s doubling current capacity

    Question is do we want to take our time and do it right or do we want to rush just to have something in place for 2020?

    That’s the question we should be asking ourselves

    Please no, the thought of that feels like repeating the last 20 years which with the exception of Goff’s last year haven’t been good. I want so bad for a Tech men's team to win a conference championship of some sort. All of this repeated underachieving is becoming unbearable. Maybe, hopefully with a legit NCAA / conference tournament caliber and institutionally proud facility we’ll be a few steps closer to getting a legit coach who can build a real program. What we’re suffering through now sucks.

    Not sure what building back in the same spot has to do with any of your concerns.

    FWIW, as old as our facilities were, we had good facilities compared to our peers.

    Any good coach we get will be hired away which is a good thing if your have a guy hiring who knows how to properly replace the good coach.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with the stadium location - that’s a 98% admin issue

    I don’t think most of y’all realize the great scenic value of our present location

    I love the scenic value of the present location. And if there was an extra 60 feet available on all sides, this thread wouldn't be needed because site selection would not be an issue. Next best alternative that would at least pay homage to the current site would be in the Neilsen-Caruthers space with the outfield fence toward the railroad tracks.

    And if softball were placed in the current baseball location, both programs could have the scenic value.

    Re: Where should LaTech rebuild baseball stadium

    Can you not see Hale Hall from the Neilsen-Caruthers area? I'll have to drive by there to see. I know the railroad track goes by it. I think I'm leaning towards the Neilsen-Caruthers area for baseball. Softball moving into the old baseball area is a good idea, also. If there is enough room to do a new baseball stadium at the current location then I'm fine keeping it there. However, I don't think there is enough room though.

    Hale Hall should be on first base sight line from that area...

    I’m not convinced there is not room enough yet, from a google shot there looks to be in the neighborhood of almost 90 feet of wiggle room from back of structure now to the wrought iron fence that faces west Alabama

    I just hope we don’t make a rush to judgement to meet a time line and that we honestly explore all possibilities

    I'm with you on that. I just want it done right wherever it's at. If we stay in the current location the new stadium will definitely be snug against Tech Dr. and Alabama. I love the scenic value of the current location but I don't want to sacrifice any needed amenities for the scenic value.
