There is a growing trend in collegiate athletics that extends the competition from the field on game days to recruiting battles off the field. The design for ATU-Indoor Multi-Sports Complex began with the idea of making an impact on competition both on and off field by making this new facility a part of the in-game experience.
The new left field wall takes cues from the famous Big Green Monster at Fenway Park in Boston, Mass. while also serving as the southern wall for the locker room and coach's office. Careful consideration was required to meet the budget along with a construction schedule to minimize disruption of the 2017 season. The project was completed in March 2018.
