The University of Kansas athletics is pursuing upgrades to Hoglund Ballpark, and will work to improve both fan and player amenities in the process.
Along with completing a separate plan that would lead to a rebuilding of volleyball’s Horejsi Center, Kansas is looking to move forward with renovations to Hoglund Ballpark. Should the project receive proper approval, it would lead to upgraded seating and concessions, as well as improvements to spaces such as the locker rooms and the press box.
Current estimates call for Hoglund Ballpark upgrades to cost $12 million, with private donations covering the project. The matter will be considered at an upcoming Kansas Board of Regents meeting. More from The Kansas City Star:
KU Athletics also is requesting permission for a $12 million refurbishing of Hoglund Ballpark, which would include a new grandstand with “2,000 stadium seats, including 80 field-level suite seats, and eight press box-level suites that accommodate 40 people each.” The athletic department also plans to add 1,000 seats down the left-field line while also improving other facilities at the park such as the concession stands, restrooms, locker rooms and press box.
