The Next Step
The Razorback athletic department announced Monday that Kinco Construction has begun project site work with hopes to begin actual building soon after more money is raised to cover the expected cost of between $7.75-9.625 million.
It is a proposed 52,000 square foot facility, would be located next to the Randall Tyson Track Facility and will include a practice infield, throwing area, a batting area and areas that will allow all track and field throwing events to be held inside the building.
"As we continue to seek support from donors through the 'Never Yield' campaign, we are preparing the site for the baseball and track indoor training facility," noted Jeff Long, Arkansas' Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. "This will allow us to complete necessary preliminary site work which will put us in position to move forward quickly once funds are identified. "
The baseball and track facility is one of three that Arkansas is currently working to build as well as a basketball practice facility and a Student-Athlete Success Center.
"These three facilities are critical to the future success of our program," Long said. "We have already begun to see the positive impact of the Fred W. Smith Football Center on our football program, and now our focus is on gaining donor support for three additional facilities which will positively impact all of our more than 460 student-athletes."
