Stone Building Company has kicked off construction on an $18 million expansion and renovation project to Auburn University’s Plainsman Park.

The expanded Plainsman Patio and First Base Club is a three-story structure that will provide a variety of new fan experience offerings, including indoor and outdoor viewing areas, new concession offerings, expanded restrooms, and more. At the inner-concourse level, the newly covered Plainsman Patio space will provide expanded standing-room space, while offering access to an all-new walk-in concession market. The third level will feature an all-new upscale ballpark experience with the First Base Club. This area is expected to include approximately 200 new seats ranging in type from cushioned chairback seats to outdoor loge seating options, and will offer elevated food and beverage options, a climate-controlled indoor space, and private restrooms.  

By relocating the existing press box to a new location on the third level of the First Base Club structure, a new high-end club experience will be developed atop the home plate grandstands. With one of the best views in the ballpark, this area is expected to include approximately 50 high-end seats and a climate-controlled environment with access to food, drinks, restrooms, and more premium amenities.
