Tennessee Vols unveil Lindsey Nelson Stadium renovation concepts

Tennessee unveiled concepts for Lindsey Nelson Stadium renovations on Friday with plans to incorporate fan feedback into the future changes.

“We don’t have to be the biggest stadium in college baseball,” UT athletics director Danny White said. “But let’s be the best — the most unique. … With our fans, we can do that if we do this project right.”

UT released renderings prior to its 10-0 win against Alabama State to open the NCAA Tournament. 

The renderings feature drastic changes to the current design of Lindsey Nelson Stadium, which has been a focal point for White, Vols coach Tony Vitello and the athletic department.

“I just really applaud the administration and the idea of working hard on this so maybe if we’re able to get it out on a day like today, the timing is perfect,” Vitello said. “My phone was blowing up and I think everyone is very impressed. It’s hard to get into the exact details right now of ‘What’s this road going to be called?’, but just to see the grand scale of it lets people know how serious everyone around here is in investing in baseball.”
