The University of Florida has watched its baseball team become one of the best programs in the country.
And soon enough the program will enjoy a brand new home stadium.
Nick de la Torre of GatorCountry.com was the first to notice the proposed plan on the UF website.
Man, Scott Stricklin doesn’t mess around. @GatorsBB getting a brand new $45.9 M, 5,500 seat stadium with shade cover for fans.

The stadium, according to the plans on the school’s website, will feature a 360-degree concourse with an outfield berm for general admission seating. It will also have luxury suites and shade fixture for the fans in attendance.
It is important to note that these plans (entitled UAA-41 Baseball Project) are very preliminary and can change (or not be approved by the UF’s Planning, Design, and Construction Division).
The location of the new stadium was not included in the initial plans, but a source within the UAA states that it’s likely to be near the softball stadium.
The Gators won their first national title in 2017, and have made it to the College World Series in six of the last eight years.
And if this plan goes through, they will have a state of the art facility to play in.
More to come on this developing story.
