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.
Also, officials ensure designs are ADA compliant in all areas while members of the sports communication staff provide their input about the press box.
But Lakos said specifics about what upgrades the Athletic Board will take on and which steps will be taken next will not be released until at least May.
Foley Field was built in 1966 and named after judge Frank Foley
The field last underwent renovations in 1990, when it was refurbished at the cost of $3.5 million.
In the summer of 2003, a new drainage system and playing surface were installed.
Foley Field has a capacity of 3,291, although its largest crowd was 4,461 against Mississippi State on March 21, 2009.
