TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – During the 2011 Florida State softball season, several fans, media and opposing teams alike will once again take notice of the historical program’s exceptional athletic facilities.
JoAnne Graf Field is part of a state-of-the-art softball complex that is equipped with everything necessary for a fantastic gameday experience. The venue includes upgraded locker rooms, meeting rooms, staff and coaches offices, a team lounge, a traditions room and even a team classroom. A brand new scoreboard was even unveiled for the 2007 season, using the same technology that is utilized at most professional sports stadiums.
The Seminole Softball Complex, which also includes the Stiles and Smith team building, has yet another renovation that is scheduled for completion in Feb. 2011. An indoor, two-story batting cage facility that also includes a bullpen nearby the home-side dugout allows the Seminoles to further fine-tune their offensive skills when inclement weather arrives. The newest feature is certainly a rarity in collegiate softball, and provides the Seminole student-athletes with a safe haven from Mother Nature.
The Seminole Softball Complex is adjacent to the FSU Soccer Complex, located between Dick Howser Stadium and Mike Long Track on Spirit Way in Tallahassee.
