Case Study

Texas A&M University Blue Bell Park Renovating a Ballpark While Preserving the Historic Character

College Station, Texas, USA

The Challenge

To combine the historic character and detailing from the center of the Texas A&M University campus with the tradition and nostalgia of Aggie baseball.

The Design Solution

Our design team studied the rich history of Texas A&M and Aggie baseball to inspire the design of Blue Bell Park’s renovations, and the new ballpark is deeply rooted in the fabric of the campus’ early 20th century architecture. The 126,000 square feet (11,705 sm) of renovations include wider concourses, new restrooms, new concessions, a new team store and a new exterior façade. Players will have a new weight room, hydrotherapy room, training room, bullpens, locker rooms and team lounge. Coaches are receiving new offices and a separate locker room. Additional new seating environments have also been incorporated, including new press box level suites as well as club seats, scout seats and loge boxes that all directly connect to a premium club, with additional seats for fans with special needs.

The Design Impact

The expansion helps Blue Bell Park create excitement and nostalgia. It is a major-league-quality facility with a hospitality-grade environment that shows Texas A&M University is committed to providing student athletes with the best tools available to achieve present and future success.
