Early results of the ongoing Dudy Noble Field renovation will be on display Tuesday, when Mississippi State plays its 2018 home opener at the venue.
Dudy Noble Field is currently in the middle of a multi-phase renovation. While the full result of the project will not be evident until next year, the facility is set to receive several features, including a new double-tiered grandstand with chairback seating, an elevated concourse, new entry plazas, new premium areas, a concourse that wraps around the field, and a revamped Left Field Lounge.
The overall project remains a work in progress, but Mississippi State is still eager to return to Dudy Noble Field for its 2018 home opener. More from the Starkville Daily News:
Mississippi State interim head coach Gary Henderson and his Bulldogs are ready to take the field with their new home surroundings.
“My overall impression is it’ll be the best facility in the country and we’re really proud of it,” Henderson said. “We’re fortunate to be at a place where people care enough that we get to play in that type of a stadium.”
Construction on Dudy Noble Field won’t be complete until a year from now, but MSU is scheduled to play 23 home games this season, starting with today’s affair.
Mississippi State will face New Mexico State in its home opener on Tuesday evening, and the two teams will square off again at Dudy Noble Field on Wednesday. For more details on the major renovation taking place at Dudy Noble Field, see a feature on the project from our own Jarah Wright.
