This indoor baseball practice facility has a 113 ft clear span with a 20 ft minimum eave height. The practice floor is a specially designed synthetic surface that simulates actual playing field grass. The facility includes a recruiting room /office and toilets. The lower half of the walls are split-faced block for durability, while the front portion of the building is done in the yellow DSU brick similiar to the rest of the universities structures.
