THE FLATS – To celebrate the naming of Georgia Tech baseball’s newly renovated facilities, fans in attendance of Saturday’s 2 p.m. game against Eastern Kentucky will be able to pick up a Mac Nease Baseball Park at Russ Chandler Stadium commemorative baseball upon exiting the stadium.
The facilities’ new name was announced Feb. 9 as Mac Nease Baseball Park is comprised of Russ Chandler Stadium and all of its accompanying facilities, including Champions Hall, the centerpiece of Phase II of Georgia Tech’s baseball facility renovations.
In all, the Neases funded a significant portion of the $13.5 million needed for Phase I and II of the renovations as the project’s finalization remains on-going through the start of the 2021 season.
Georgia Tech’s Opening Weekend features a three-game series against Eastern Kentucky on Feb. 19-21. First pitches are scheduled for 2 p.m. (Friday and Saturday) and 1 p.m. (Sunday). The games will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra and WREK 91.1 FM.
