Alex Gordon Training Complex
The Alex Gordon Training Complex was completed in the fall of 2011 at a cost of $4.75 million. The facility was specifically designed for baseball and softball and has 18,000 square feet of climate-controlled practice space that allows for working on all phases of the game. The space can be configured to utilize as many as six spacious batting cages.
The cages can also be retracted to open up all of the 120-foot by 150-foot space for live game simulation. The entire facility is netted, allowing for the Huskers to take live batting practice. The field turf surface looks and feels like real grass, and the field includes anchors to lock down bases for use during practices
It was renamed the Alex Gordon Training Complex following a $1 million donation from the Alex Gordon Family.
