Omaha-Since the baseball and softball programs began in UNO, both of these teams have passed many stadiums. The softball team played at the Westside High School softball field, and the UNO baseball team played at various stadiums.
But from the spring of 2021, that will change.
UNO’s baseball and softball stadiums, Tal Anderson Field and Connie Clausen Field, are currently under construction and will be ready by the spring of 2021.
“We took a realistic look at the entire athletic club in 2009 and worked on the master plan. The real goal was to find a way to get all the students back on campus. But athletics, It is defined by wins and losses, “said Tref Alberts, UNO Athletic Director.
Two of those stadiums are named after two great legends in Omaha. Along with that, there was also a personal donation to Keywitt’s construction team.
“These are two giants in the athletic community, and if you’re actually trying to build a facility at the end of the day, this’s about a $ 23 million project. Everything that’s allowed you to build this kind of project. The dollars are all personal donations. There is clearly no taxpayer support, student fees, or tuition income, “says Albert.
Baseball and softball team schedules are likely to be announced from next month to January.
