Details

The home of Georgia Tech baseball for nearly 90 years, Russ Chandler Stadium has a long and storied history, from its original construction in 1930 with funds from Tech’s 1929 appearance in the Rose Bowl game to its use as a training facility for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. With incredible views of the Atlanta skyline, the facility underwent a $4.5 million renovation and expansion underneath the stadium. The Yellow Jackets’ locker, training and weight rooms were transformed to make Russ Chandler into a state-of-the-art, all-around facility. Tech’s locker room doubled to 2,000-square feet and renamed the Mark Teixeira Locker Room. An anonymous $2.5 million challenge grant was the lead for Phase I of the Russ Chandler Stadium renovations. Phase II of the renovations, which includes further expansion of the team’s clubhouse facilities down the left-field line, has completed funding and is entering the final development stages. The latest renovation in 2014-15 was the first for Russ Chandler Stadium since its complete reconstruction for the 2002 season. The reconstruction took less than eight months at a cost of $9.7 million, making Russ Chandler Stadium one of the top collegiate ballparks in America. Russ Chandler Stadium is the only college baseball facility in the country to be been named “Field of the Year” by the Sports Turf Managers Association three times. Russ Chandler remains the only baseball stadium in the Atlantic Coast Conference to have earned the honor, taking the crown in 2008, 2014, 2019. At a current capacity of 3,718, Georgia Tech’s baseball facility more than doubled in size when the renovations were complete in 2002. Russ Chandler Stadium features approximately 1,100 chairback seats behind the home plate area in addition to more than 2,500 bleacher seats.
