Alabama's Board of Trustees voted Thursday afternoon to build a new $30 million baseball stadium
for the 2015 season. It's being tabbed as a renovation of Sewell-Thomas Stadium, however every part of the existing structure will be replaced minus the ongoing construction of the adjoining Sarah Patterson Champions Plaza along the right-field wall.
