An exciting era is set to begin in 2020 for Oklahoma State baseball. The Cowboys officially announced plans for a new baseball stadium, which is scheduled to open in two years.

The state-of-the-art complex will be a sanctuary for players and fans of Oklahoma State’s baseball program with several amenities planned to be included in the final design.

A few quick facts about the new stadium stadium:

  • Location: The complex will be located at the corner of Washington Street and McElroy Road in Stillwater.
  • Opening date: It is scheduled to open in 2020.
  • Seating capacity: The stadium will have 3,500 permanent seats, plus 13 suites and 400 premium seats in club and suite areas. Oklahoma State says it can expand the capacity to 8,000 seats as needed.
