Q:  The renovation of Triton Ballpark has had a tremendous impact on the baseball program as well as the fan experience at games. Are there any other facility projects on the horizon?


A:  The “new” Triton Ballpark has already provided significant return in the form of recruiting, community engagement (camps and tournaments), increased potential to host NCAA Regional and conference championship events and a clubhouse venue other departments on campus can utilize.

It is the first of two major facility enhancements we’ve had on the docket this year. In early June, we broke ground on the new Alex G. Spanos Athletic Performance Center which will be located on the northwest rim of the Track & Field Stadium. It’s scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the fall quarter in late September. Although the focus of this state-of-the-art building will be on intercollegiate athletics, it will prove beneficial to the entire student body, not only as a site all students can access but in the context of freeing up time and space at the RIMAC weight room which currently gets the brunt of campus activity.

Like the ballpark, the Spanos facility will be a valuable asset in recruiting—for all 23 sports. The completion of these two projects, combined with our revamped athletic scholarship program has made 2014-15 a banner year for UC San Diego Athletics.
