J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family Baseball Development Center

The best player development facility in the country. The J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family Baseball Development Center, an approximately 49,000 square foot baseball performance facility, will provide student-athletes with an improved and expanded locker room, team meeting room, strength and conditioning center, training room, nutrition center, student-athlete pitching and development lab and an in-venue batting tunnel.

The facility is being constructed in the right field corner of Baum-Walker Stadium, connecting it with the current west concourse and providing new premium viewing areas for games. It will also include a tunnel to connect the facility with the first base dugout.

The $27 million J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family Baseball Development Center is being funded entirely by athletic revenues, gifts and bond proceeds from a bond issue. No university funds, state funds or student fees will be required to complete the project. The facility was approved for construction in June 2019 by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees.





Track & Field High Performance Center

The track and field high performance center will be constructed just south of the track at John McDonnell Field. While John McDonnell Field was renovated into one of the top outdoor track and field competition venues in the nation in 2006, the facility does not currently provide ample space to house daily training for the more than 100 student-athletes competing in the men’s and women’s programs


A new approximately 22,000 square foot Track Operations Center will combine many of the program’s day-to-day operations to create an efficient space to serve both the men’s and women’s track and field programs. The total project cost of the facility is estimated to be $15 million.




Tyson Indoor Track

The Randal Tyson Track Center, one of the top indoor track and field venues in the world, will receive aesthetic and event enhancing upgrades. The phase one improvements to the facility will include replacement of the track surface, new graphics along with AV upgrades and additional building enhancements. The total project cost of phase one is estimated at $5 million.
