The new Katie Seashole Pressly Softball Stadium will consist of 360 degree open concourse seating connected across the entire stadium with open views to the field and viewing areas located along the outfield walls. The construction of a new elevated press box will allow for the open concourse, better access and additional shade for fans seated behind home plate. New shade structures will be erected for multiple sections of seats to make for a more comfortable environment for fans. This renovation will increase overall seating capacity allowing for permanent seating to have chair backs and increase from 1,431 to approximately 2,280 seats and establish seating areas in non-traditional places like a berm for an overall capacity of approximately 2,800. Overall improved amenities will make for a much better fan experience for Gator Nation.
