College baseball teams can’t start practicing officially until tomorrow, but we’ve got a few other tidbits to pass along as the offseason wraps up. First, Oregon unveiled plans to build an impressive 5,000-seat, $15 million stadium in the parking lot of the Ducks’ football stadium. The Ducks have already secured $6.5 million in donations and are working on raising the rest–naming rights figure to account for a large chunk of that. As expected, the Ducks will share the facility with the short-season Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League. We’ll have more on the stadium in this month’s installment of Oregon Trail in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, in Knoxville, former Tennessee great Todd Helton became the first player to have his number retired by the Volunteers. The Rocky Mountain News has details of the entertaining ceremony.
