Boise State will again focus on on-campus ballpark

Boise State says it will again focus on locating its baseball team at a proposed on-campus baseball stadium. The school changed course several times and told the Idaho Press’ Margaret Carmel it could again join a Boise Sports Park project.

But today, the school again said it would look to a facility south of Albertsons Stadium.

“After several months of discussions and analyses, Boise State University will continue to pursue construction of an on-campus ballpark,” Boise State University VP of Communications Greg Hahn said. “In the end, it was determined that the on-campus ballpark remained the most prudent use of public dollars and the best way for Boise State baseball to help build on our university’s national reputation and vibrant campus life.”

“The prospect of prolonged uncertainty in the development of a municipal ballpark
makes it prudent for the University to move forward with constructing its own
facility in time for the Spring 2021 collegiate baseball season,” Schimpf said in a statement released by the school.
