What changes/renovations would you make at the Box?
Think we can all agree that the Box could use an upgrade with most of the SEC either renovating or building new ballparks. It was the first of its kind in college baseball when it opened in 2009 but the bar has been raised in 12+ years.

What changes would you make?

1. Chairbacks

Replace bleachers with chairbacks in the grandstand. That itself would be a huge improvement. The pictures below give you an idea of what it'd look like.




2. Left or Right Field Lounge/Patio

Here's a recent rendering of the renovation at Baum. LSU could do something similar at the Box. Remove the outfield bleachers and build a wing that has various types of seating, fan amenities, etc. The top level could be a sports bar type area with a large patio that could also be used for standing room only tickets. Shit, sell the naming rights to a place like Walk-On's since they're continuing to expand across the SE.

Using the same architecture style as the clubhouse at the softball complex would look good.




3. Outfield Berm/Relaxed Seating

Badly needed. The area behind the outfield would more than likely need to be reconfigured but it's doable. Build it on opposite side of the addition above and allow students/fans to bring chairs, ice chests, etc.

Arkansas, Ole Miss, & State all have similar set ups which are a hell of a time. It would only enhance the experience for the younger fans. The outfield bleachers suck





4. Outfield Ads

They used to annoy me more but the ads in the outfield could be better executed. Either charge companies more per ad and reduce the amount sold, or keep the same number of ads and make them unified in color (white).

I still think purple fences with minimal ads would look cool.

This right here. No problem with the ads if they’re uniform.

Berm is never happening.

Chairbacks are a no brainer. You could even add rows to the top to make up for some of the lost seating.

Lounge/Patio is a good idea as well, especially with beer/wine allowed. I think it would probably have to go in left due to existing structures in right.

Move the bullpens off the field play and behind the fence. I cringe every time a player runs over in that direction chasing a fly ball.

You could pack the stadium if we fielded an exciting winning team just as we did at the old Box.

Sure you could put in some upgrades, but you need to start playing winning baseball once again. All that other stuff is just icing on the cake.

A berm works better if you have a stadium built into the side of a hill. Building a huge “levee” beyond the fences isn’t very practical.

Behind the stands down first and third base make a deck all the way around even with the deck at the grandstand like in Omaha.

Take the bleachers in left field or right and make the step up where type berm where you can bring chair and have a better atmosphere. Another SEC park has it but can't remember which.

You can also add a row of box seats behind right field.

And yes put the bull pens in the outfield.

And do more with that big dang scoreboard like the did a couple years ago. Putting stuff on it about the players and such.

Also add a section to the scoreboard that shows live scores around the league.

I feel simply doing chairbacks throughout the whole stadium would bring up the aesthetics of the place tremendously.

They messed up in the design by trying to make it too much like the old box. Should have just started from scratch.

What are y’all’s thoughts on moving bullpens to a nicer area beyond the fences in left and right center?

It makes sense logistically to move them but would remove the fan interaction with pitchers warming up.
