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.
