WVU baseball facilities

Posted: 5/27/2011 1:22 AM

WVU baseball facilities 


The baseball facilities at WVU are not even close to D-I standards--metal, creaky bleachers, no locker room or shower facilities, players sharing a restroom with fans during the game.

Pitt  just opened its new baseball, softball and soccer facilities and upped the ante in recruiting. With TCU, a national baseball power,  joining the Big East, baseball will become even more high-profile.

Here's hoping an upgrade of the baseball facilities--at least as much as was recently done for wrestling-- is a priority in the Athletic Department. In the meantime, check out the new $2.5 million dollar baseball clubhouse and training facility at a low D-1 program, UNC-Greeensboro:

Write an e-mail to Ollie. That's one way of bringing this to his attention. Oh and have him FIRE Greg Van Zant.

Your last three posts were about 1.) Christian music, 2.) Ms WV, and 3.) best dining experiences in Morgantown.

No other rebuttal is necessary.

Has Ollie even commented on Baseball?  I suppose you have to compare WVU facilities with all of the BE teams to get some idea of how far we have to go.  The comment that no one cares about WVU baseball may be close to true, but the main reason may be that WVU has not paid attention to the program.  Fans won't get excited if there is nothing to get excited about.  I don't think a coaching change matters unless Ollie is ready to back it up with more $$$.

Yeah the facilities are sub par. The dugouts look like something from the 1970's, and I've never heard anyone say anything good about GVZ. He can be a royal jerk, which is fine if you are winning. However, he doesn't win so he gets no benefit of the doubt from me.

Here's an article from a journalist in Atlanta that questions the state of our baseball facilities as relates to an SEC bid (see #2). It's time to renovate Hawley Field and at least add locker rooms and replace the backstop netting. The soccer and wrestling facilities are state-of-the-art.

I'm sure baseball is next on the list besides football. Basketball just got the practice facility and women's soccer got their facility and field. Coach will be the first thing to go, then we can start working on building a new field

WVU better hurry up because without facilities and a coach recruits want to play for WVU is going to get CRUSHED in the B12.

Texas , Oklahoma etc will be coming to town. I hope we spend half the money on upgrading our baseball facilities that we spent on the women's new soccer practice field, locker room and stadium.

Re: WVU baseball facilities 


I just saw the photo spread in the BGN newspaper on the indoor practice facility for basketball.

I mean, the women's basketball coach gets an office with a fireplace and separate facilities for practice, film etc? Wow. What have the women accomplished on a national level to deserve that? Hugs clearly deserved a palace for his Final 4, but Title IX was never meant to reward women when the men's baseball team doesn't even have a place to get dressed or shower. Unbelievable. The women have a locker room in the Coliseum and that money could have been better spent on other non-revenue sports.

I did not know that WVU baseball was not taken seriously at your university.    We take baseball seriously at Texas and you will find that most of the Texas / Oklahoma schools are above avg at the sport.     What does your facility actually look like?
