RUSTON, La. - The Louisiana Tech Bulldog baseball program is receiving a facelift in the form of a renovated locker room and players' lounge that will be added to J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park set to be completed by the beginning of the 2013 season.
With the help of several donations, the current locker room will be transformed into a players' lounge while the park will see the addition of a brand new locker room added on to the current one.
"The work being done is for the development of our players and to give our players a larger space to dress in," head coach Wade Simoneaux said. "We are turning the old locker room into a player's lounge and are hoping to spruce up J.C. Love and give the guys a better environment to play in."
J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park has seen numerous renovations under Simoneaux's tenure and several since 2008. Renovations include a new scoreboard, the addition of approximately 400 chair back seats to add to the 300 already in place, the completion of a new press box and several logos and stadium flags surrounding the park.
"We have had many donors for this project and donations are still being taken to hopefully complete the project by the time the season begins," he said.
The Bulldogs will kick start the 2013 campaign Feb. 15 to face UT Arlington on the road in Arlington, Texas before hosting Oral Roberts Feb. 22-24 for the team's first home series of the season.
