Lindsey Nelson Stadium changes from grass to artificial turf

KNOXVILLE — Lindsey Nelson Stadium has started a conversion of going from a grass field to artificial turf.

The playing surface and facility upgrades are scheduled to be completed prior to Tennessee’s season opener versus Appalachian State on Feb. 15, 2019.

Tony Vitello discussed the upgrades in a UT press release.

“The field is at the centerpiece of this 2018-19 project,” Vitello said. “But upgrades and work will also be done on the home bullpen area, our batting cages and the players’ locker room.”

Vitello also mentioned Tennessee athletics director Phillip Fulmer being an instrumental part in the baseball program.

“Coach Fulmer has spent a great deal of time and energy in an effort to make sure every sport here at UT is seen as important and takes winning championships very seriously,” Vitello said. “Our student-athletes are incredibly fortunate to immediately benefit from these actions that support that philosophy. Our administration’s belief in our staff and our program prior to seeing results will be something that will go a long way for us.”
