Nebraska's athletic department is planning to spend $4.75 million on an indoor practice facility for the Cornhusker baseball and softball teams.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's athletic department announced details of the practice facility Friday.
If the university's regents approve, the 22,000-square-foot practice facility will be built near Nebraska's Haymarket Park field.
The practice facility would have batting cages, pitching mounds and a turf field usable for indoor practice.
University officials said this upgrade at Haymarket Park should improve the odds of Nebraska hosting regional competition in the NCAA baseball and softball tournaments.
