Kentucky Baseball getting a new stadium; Football training facility named after Joe Craft

Big news all around UK.

UK Athletics

The Kentucky Wildcats will soon be getting a new baseball stadium.

On Friday, UK announced plans for a brand-new stadium, and construction of it is expected to begin in February.

It's unclear what this means for UK baseball in the 2017 season, though it looks as though they'll keep playing games at their current venue, Cliff Hagan Stadium.

A new stadium for the baseball team has been in the works for several years, but it was behind on UK's to-do list with football needing renovations to Commonwealth Stadium, as well as a state-of-the-art training facility.

Speaking of, that new football facility will be named after Joe Craft thanks to his large donation.

This is indeed a great day for UK Athletics.
