    I was thinking the pipes would be either electrical or plumbing.

    The holes are excavations for concrete footings. You can see the plastic caps on the end of all the rebar. The white pipe is pvc plumbing pipe. I would suspect that this area will be either concession stand or rest room. Keep in mind that since the camera is so close we are seeing only that area from home plate to first base. We are not seeing any activity that is happening along the third base line. I suspect that the structure will be steel or precast concrete. If precast concrete it will be like the new parking garages on campus. If that is the case then the structure will go up fairly quick once the foundation work is complete. The speed of erection will depend on how fast they can deliver the sections.

    I have one question. The third base bleachers are just a feet from the club house. Looking at the picture, where will the structure be behind it. Will the club house be torn down? Just don't see it.

    There is no structure going behind third base bleachers. There will be the deck that goes over the clubhouse. Supports for the deck were accounted for including a couple that go through the clubhouse.

    As an addendum, the clubhouse will be inaccessible until all construction work is completed. Until then, I would assume baseball will probably continue to work out of the Cox center.

    This is the back end of the deal we put together last season. We picked up a midweek game with them over there in the middle of the season due to other lost games. Hopefully we get it in our park, but we'll see

    The new structure is being built on top / around the clubhouse

    Actually, unless things were changed we were told there will be structural support members for the new bleacher decks inside the current clubhouse structure.

    141 days if the opener is a home game at the Tigue on Feb. 17th......about 4.5 months. They will have to put a crew in each one of those holes and don't let them out until their job is completed, (in those holes).

    Good thing the Cox building hasn't been torn down yet, it's Scott Fubar's back up plan for everything!
