LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The overhaul of UK Athletics facilities continues Solid Blue fans. On deck, the new baseball facility on the south side of campus.
It was groundbreaking day next to the soccer-softball complex.
Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart and first-year head Bat Cat Nick Mingione were on hand to get to work.
It’s about family, and resources meeting expectations, for the program. But what’s planned is state of the art, so should Solid Blue fans be prepared to raise their expectations to meet the new resources?
Also on hand for the ceremony was former UK head coach Keith Madison.
A man known around the Commonwealth and baseball circles and beyond, Madison was, and is, very much appreciated by the new staff and embraced for helping with both the literal and figurative foundation for the future.
Check out the video to hear from Barnhart, Mingione and Madison.
