I saw some drawings a few years ago that we're unbelievable, but I'm not sure if those are still an option. They we're based on building the stadium on a new, bigger area of land, not on the current Siebert land. One thing that has been talked about is doing the stadium in phases. Undfortunately, with the economy I don't think the new stadium will be top of the line like anderson had hoped it would be, at least not right away. Back when he had money lined, we had Molitor, Steinbach, Winfield, Greg Olsen, Neagle still playing and making big money. Even Jack Morris was on board. Now it's Quinlan and Hananhan as the established major leaguers and they aren't in the big money. Have heard that Joe Mauer is interested in helping out and maybe naming something for his Grandpa.
In other news, Becky is still the only Big 10 school with no baseball team. LOL!
Really?? I didn't know that. I guess you learn something new every day (even between semesters ) I hate talking about the female dogs to the east in a Gopher baseball thread, but why don't they have a baseball team?
I doubt if Becky will get baseball back
Barry Alvarez wants baseball in Wisconsin. He had nothing to do with it leaving, and he's researched ways to get it back. It was strictly a Title IX decision made by an irresponsible chancellor in Madison in the early 90's. It's pretty sad, really. But Alvarez just may get it back. Wisconsin high school baseball players are robbed of a chance so they can field a women's rowing team, but I don't know of one high school in Wisconsin that has women's or men's rowing.
