The Alex Gordon Training Complex at Haymarket Park
Construction of a new $4.75 million indoor practice facility was completed in October of 2011. The 22,000-square foot building features a large indoor practice area, along with restrooms and storage facilities. The facility is conveniently located on the northeast corner of Haymarket Park, just feet from Nebraska's locker room, clubhouse, athletic medicine facilities and coaches' offices. The practice area has an open design, with 18,000 square feet of usable space. The space is lined with netting, allowing for the entire area to be used for live batting practice ang game simulation. The facility features six retractable batting cages. The batting cages are designed to be large enough to allow for batters to face pitchers in live simulation at the correct pitching distance. When not in use, the cages can be easily retracted to allow for use of the entire space.
