Indiana’s proposed baseball/softball complex is expected to cost $19.8 million and would be built on the originally proposed site near the 45/46 bypass, according to the Board of Trustees agenda.
The site was originally approved in 2006 as part of a $55 million athletics facilities project that also included the North End Zone facility in Memorial Stadium and Cook Hall. Those two projects took up all of the funding, however, and IU has been taking donations to build up the baseball/softball complex. When athletic director Fred Glass’s tenure began, he reassessed the project and learned that the initially approved project would cost approximately $24 million. He decided at that point to scale the project back, hoping to pay between $10 to $13 million and to build it on the current baseball/softball site at Sembower Field.
The $19.8 million figure and the move back to the proposed site apparently indicates that IU was more successful at fund-raising than expected. The agenda reiterates that the complex will be paid for through private fund raising and athletic department funds. Construction will begin in Spring 2012 and conclude in Spring 2013.
Glass will present the project to the Board of Trustees on Thursday in Indianapolis. IU is seeking approval from the board and state for the project.
