Construction Commences on McLane Baseball Stadium
Dec. 17, 2008
EAST LANSING, Mich. - Construction on the new McLane Baseball Stadium recently began in preparation for a Spring 2009 opening. Construction crews have removed the former bleachers and begun digging the foundations for the new stadium.
"It's exciting to see the construction getting started on what will be a great new home for Spartan baseball," said MSU head coach Jake Boss. "It also serves a reminder that baseball season is around the corner."
McLane Baseball Stadium is designed for 2,500 seats with 400 chair back seats and 2,100 bench-style seats, a new press box, backstops, all new fencing and handicap-accessible seating, with brick accents to architecturally match historic Jenison Field House and MSU's newly constructed hitting and pitching facility.
Drayton and Elizabeth McLane provided MSU with a $4 million commitment toward the stadium.
"We are so thankful for the outstanding generosity of Drayton and Elizabeth McLane whose gift made this state-of-the-art stadium possible," Boss added.
