University of Central Missouri Varsity Softball Stadium and Sports Complex

Central Missouri State University Varsity Softball Stadium and Sports Complex
The primary objectives of the plan are to provide adequate play space, to cohesively complement the physical development of the campus and to enhance the quality of student life by accommodating more programs and activities.
"The development of the South Farm and West Fields enormously benefit the athletic and recreational programs and will demonstrate a tangible commitment to the quality of life at [UCM]."
-Mark Gardner ASLA,
Former Director UCM Physical Facilities

As we concluded our Athletics Facility Master Plan for the campus, University of Central Missouri engaged us to design the South Farm Athletic Complex to include the first series of implementation projects. A varsity softball stadium, a slow-pitch intramural and tournament complex and three soccer fields were completed in Phase One. A clubhouse building beyond the left-field fence added team support facilities in the second phase of project development.

In 2003, Facilities Planning Director, Mark Gardner and Coach Sumrell called SportsPLAN Studio again to design a press box overlooking each of the four ballfields with ground level concessions stand, officials’ locker rooms and a field maintenance garage.
