Penn State Baseball goes Green

Penn State’s stadium has been making the news lately.  First, they made Rivals.com’s top ten list of best college baseball stadiums and now it’s number one for being green. 

Penn State University’s rag, the Daily Collegian reports that Medlar Field at Lubrano Park has become the first LEED-certified stadium in the world.  LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and the certification deems it an environmentally friendly facility. 

Some facets of the park that helped it get certified:

Features that earned Medlar Field points include automatic lights throughout the park that turn off after five minutes of no movement and waterless urinals in men’s restrooms, McCoy said. The stadium is also connected to a gray water system, which allows for reuse water that is less refined for field irrigation and other uses.

Medlar Field is also the home to the State College Spikes.
