STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State is putting up the big bucks to renovate their baseball stadium. MSU said they will spend $40 million to make it one of the best baseball facilities in the nation.
Mississippi State averaged 8,127 fans per game last season, which ranked third nationally behind LSU and Arkansas.
The plan for Dudy Noble Field, which was released on Tuesday, has a double-tiered grandstand with chair-back seating, an elevated concourse that circles the playing field, 50 skyboxes with additional premium seating, improved field lighting, a high-definition video board and additional team areas.
Mississippi State says a timetable for construction will be based on its Bulldog Club meeting a $20 million fundraising goal.
Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin said, “The new Dudy Noble Field Master Plan will provide our players, coaches and fans the best ballpark in all of college baseball.”
