VT English Field Baseball Improvements

Blacksburg, Virginia

Scenic English Field at Atlantic Union Bank Park provides Virginia Tech with a first-class campus setting for college baseball, day or night. in 2016, the stadium received substantial upgrading with help of $3.5 million committed by the Richmond-based Union Bank.

Designed by Cannon Design and built by Whiting-Turner, the $20 million renovation project added a new grandstand area – with new press-level premium suites – 1,132 permanent chair-back seats in concrete stands and a club level above the first-base dugout, along with a social picnic area down the right-field line. The terracing along the third-base line remains.

The new grandstands are complete with a ticket booth, restrooms, enhanced concessions, a merchandise office, an umpire dressing room, a storage room for facilities and a visiting team room. The second level includes four luxury suites with an extra hospitality area, broadcast and radio booths, a game operations booth, a press area and video rooms. This renovation also included the addition of both bullpens.
