Thank you Title IX. :bang:Not if they don't fund any kind of women's team first.
Impossible to convert the Dome into a Baseball field. There's barely enough space for the football field.ACC Baseball is AWESOME. If you want some fun, come on down to the Rusty C for a Ga Tech-Clemson series in mid-May. I've seen baseball played in domed stadia before, and while not ideal, could be done. The problem would be sharing the space with Lax during the spring.

I think the problem you would run into would be the weather. Our regular season runs from Feb 18 to May 21. Conference games start on March 11. You guys know the weather up there more than I do, but I can't imagine it's all that pleasant for baseball that time of year.
In fact, a lot of our early-season series are against northern teams coming south to get some games/practice out of the snow. St. John's and Rutgers have played down here for the last few years in Feb or early March.
Dome is made of solid concrete. You'd have to tear down 50% of it just to make that happen. If you are going to tear down 50%, you might as well build a new one.Could the seats on one of the sidelines be made retractable in the Dome? You could have 300 to one field, something shorter in the other with a high wall. There has to be some way to engineer it.
Our softball team plays most of its first month down south, traveling around. They are a pretty decent squad, won a game in the tourney this year but didn't advance past the first round. Would like to see us have baseball, there's room on south campus for a small stadium, which would be much better than having to drive to ABS for a game.
I know this is a football board but does this mean SU will have to field a baseball team?
SU's baseball team is its lacrosse team.I know this is a football board but does this mean SU will have to field a baseball team?

Cost would probably be in the $75mill range. No chance in hell you devote $75mill to a college baseball start-up team.
