It's amazing to witness the growth of Binghamton University, both on campus and in our communities. For the two years or so it took to build the School of Pharmacy in Johnson City, I drove by the site on my way to and from work every day, and got to see the progress of the building over the span of its construction.

Even the area around that building transformed with the old Endicott-Johnson building being remodeled for student housing and one becoming the Nursing School. And another Binghamton University project was just completed on the campus in Vestal.

The $60 million-dollar Binghamton University baseball stadium is now complete and opening day was April 29th as the BU men's baseball team played their first game in the new stadium against UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County.) BU won by a score of 6 to 1.

The new baseball complex is quite an amazing stadium. It's another project that was fun to see progress from the old baseball field as I drove by it a few times each week. According to a previous article published on our website, "The 84,000 square-foot complex includes the stadium, clubhouse, and an indoor training facility. The training center has a turf baseball infield with a four-story ceiling."

Don't miss out on the chance to witness a game at the new Binghamton University baseball complex. The schedule of the remaining games can be found here. Check out some of the pictures and a video from Frank Palmisano on opening day.
