PROJECT OVERVIEW

This project is expected to be completed by December 2019.

Phase V of the Eck Stadium improvements includes a new 10,000 SF Performance Facility that will benefit the baseball and softball teams. Student athletes will have their own strength and conditioning center to meet their specialized needs, and the enhanced features will also help WSU in recruiting players. The facility will also house a locker room for baseball players, media room for viewing game videos, players’ lounge area and offices for coaches and staff. It will provide access to and from the Bombardier Learjet Practice Facility, as well as to the Shocker dugout on the Eck Stadium playing field.

As part of the project, the Shocker dugout will be moved from the first-base side of the field to the third-base side. It will be enlarged and recessed to enhance player safety. Finally, the baseball program’s ticket office will be enlarged and remodeled.
