Georgia baseball fans can look forward to coming renovations of aging Foley Field, although the exact plans and design projects will not be revealed until May — at the earliest.
Georgia’s Athletic Board approved design studies for Foley Field last May, according to sports information director Christopher Lakos.
This means talks have begun with various Athletic Association personnel about what
kind of projects they would like to see done at Foley Field.For example, coaches discuss the field, stadium, locker room, training room and needs of the student-athletes, Lakos said.
These are long overdue, as Georgia lags far behind other SEC schools in facilities for the stickball, and considering the scholarships allotted thanks to Title IX, plus the number of games for tickets sold and other stadium revenue, baseball can easily be a self-sustaining and profitable entity within the Athletic Department. Plus, better facilities tends to equal better recruiting, and in a state loaded with good baseball players, that leads to more winning which leads to more revenue.
