Tiger Baseball Stadium To Get Facelift

The Memphis Tigers baseball team earned their first post season appearance since 1994 this past season.

The next step, consistancy, which will hopefully earn the university the right to host an NCAA regional in the near future...

But first, the facilities need a serious overhaul.

FedEx agrees and has granted a 3-million dollar donation to the school to be used in redesigning the Tigers baseball stadium.

New dressing facility, dugouts, grandstands, concession areas, pressbox and private suites are all in the works.

Nat Buring hasn't had a major renovation since it was built in 1971... With the updates, it should be right on par with the schools the University is competing with for big time talent.

Renovations are set to begin after next season in June of 2008.
