Once touted as the finest collegiate baseball facility in the Commonwealth, “The Bud” was originally completed in 1983. The 39-year-old complex has been upgraded to feature the Paul Keyes indoor hitting facility and the fan-friendly “Rally Alley”, BUT additional improvements are vital to the future success of the program AND essential for hosting postseason play. Monarch Nation, the time has come to “step up to the plate” in support of the ballpark renovation. Visit olddominionAF.com or call 683-6963 to learn more about how you can support this transformational initiative. The future of Old Dominion Baseball starts today and your support is critical!
