This weekend, Mississippi State softball makes history as it plays in its first-ever NCAA Super Regional. It’s evident the Bulldogs have a program on the rise.
They’re growing off the field too, as will soon be seen courtesy of a new indoor facility that’s about to be under construction.
Starting in June, MSU will begin putting together its 12,000-square foot, $7 million project. The current indoor facility along the left field line of Nusz Park will be torn down, with the new building taking its place.
It’s a game-changing development says Mississippi State head softball coach Samantha Ricketts.
“We are thrilled to announce the new facility construction that will help exponentially with our player development, athletic performance and day-to-day operations,” Ricketts said. “This is a project that we know will pay dividends in the immediate future of the program. Our student-athletes will have a state-of-the-art facility from locker rooms, a team meeting room, training rooms, as well as the top technologies in our batting cages and pitching lab areas. This will be one of the most elite indoor softball facilities in the country, and we are excited to break ground very soon.”
