Alex Gordon Training Complex
Take an inside look at the 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.
Hawks Championship Center
The Husker softball team utilizes the Hawks Championship Center when weather doesn't allow for outdoor practice.
The Hawks Championship Center features 81,200 square feet, including a full-length field identical to Memorial Stadium's game field.
The field is available to all 23 of Nebraska's varsity teams and provides a controlled environment with excellent lighting.
Both the Nebraska baseball and softball teams utilize the Hawks Championship Center when weather isn't suitable for outside practice.
