Populous has completed the $10 million second phase renovation project for the Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium at Georgia Tech.

Champions Hall, a two-story multi-purpose gathering space created on the expanded concourse, is a key component of the project. The space will celebrate the history of Georgia Tech Baseball, highlighting ACC Championships and trips to Omaha along with student-athlete accomplishments from years past. Champions Hall provides new premium chair back seating and a spacious event room that looks out onto the field. It will also serve as a meeting space for the baseball team and an event space for other organizations and alumni gatherings. The second floor also includes the Mark Teixeira Skyline Terrace, a premium seating area.

A new home plate club and two outdoor suites are located behind home plate and offer additional premium options for fans. New concessions and restrooms have been provided on the expanded left field plaza that also features new drink rail areas overlooking the field. Additionally, a new entry plaza will welcome fans and provide a space to socialize on gamedays.

The “jewel” of the Phase II renovation is the new climate-controlled elite training facility that can be used year-round by Georgia tech student-athletes, as well as alumni and professional baseball players during the offseason. The training facility includes a 2,000-sf pitching and hitting lab and 5,000-sf batting tunnel located under the concourse with connections to other team areas and direct access to the playing field. The pitching and hitting lab features motion capture cameras, tracking systems, and floor pressure plates that can record and analyze data for each player in real-time.
