Phase II renovations for Russ Chandler Stadium are driven by our vision for Georgia Tech baseball: to enhance player development, to improve the fan experience, and to celebrate Tech's rich baseball history.
The concourse level will feature an atrium that also functions as a Georgia Tech Baseball Hall of Fame. It will be the first thing fans see when they enter the stadium - an iconic point of entry - intended to serve as both a welcome and a celebration. The atrium is also designed to convert into a 40-seat teaching auditorium on non-game days.
Other features in the planned upgrade include a new outdoor plaza; a new high-tech scoreboard; all-new, expanded restroom facilities and concessions (including a premium club area); a new alumni locker room; and an expanded training facility that will be open year-round for Tech players, and available to alumni/Major League Baseball players during the offseason.
To greatly enhance player development functions within the stadium, Phase II renovations also include a training center, three 20-foot-wide batting cages, two 10-foot-wide pitching tunnels, and a video analysis room. The batting cages and pitching tunnels will be divided by retractable netting with turf flooring and a raised pitching mound.
Each of these improvements and innovations will culminate in a huge step forward for Georgia Tech baseball. Phase II renovations to the Russ Chandler Stadium will create a new, significantly enhanced fan experience. It will serve as a boon to recruiting the best, most academically qualified baseball players from around the nation. And it will give Tech baseball alumni a place where they can connect, practice, and work out with coaches, other alumni, and current players.
Yellow Jackets baseball holds a special place in Georgia Tech history. This facility will take that to a new level for future generations of players, alumni, and fans. And it will forever be tied to the transformative philanthropy and unwavering support of our many generous alumni and friends.
