- A new complex will serve as home fields for UNO baseball and softball. In addition to enhancing UNO’s brand as a Division 1 athletic program, the complex will provide intramural and recreation opportunities for all UNO students.
Just like Baxter Arena, the complex will also be an asset for Omaha, providing practice fields for College World Series teams and hosting community high school and youth sporting events.
The complex will be entirely privately funded. The goal is to have the project completed by spring 2021.
