Shira Fieldhouse Addition - This addition should be ready for use within the next two to three weeks.

Palmeiro Baseball Center - The center is being built on the west side of the current baseball stadium. Due to a dirt work delay, the time table for completion has been changed.

Softball Indoor Facility - The new facility is being built next to the left field bullpen. It should be ready within a few weeks.
