The new 10,400 SF Baseball Field House at Furman University is adjacent to the existing baseball stadium along the first baseline, with excellent views of the field from an elevated vantage point. The new facility is a continuation of the original stadium built in the 1950s and provides the stadium with a visual anchor from the nearby campus entrance. Traditional materials blend with the architectural vernacular of the surrounding campus buildings. Programmatic spaces include coaches? offices, locker rooms, a team room and an area dedicated to sports medicine. Featuring four indoor batting cages, the facility will provide the team with a flexible space to accommodate year-round hitting, pitching and fielding practice.
The field house is the first phase of projects that aim to redevelop the stadium to become a stand alone baseball facility. Eventually, it will have increased seating and improvements to enhance fan experience while maintaining the character of the original stadium.
