PSU stadium makes the grade

Rivals.com lists their top ten best college stadiums.

When I think big time college baseball, the south comes to mind geographically.  And not surprisingly, the stadiums of teams like Rice, Florida State, Texas and Baylor are representative of this list.  Kudos to University of Arkansas for getting top nod for their Baum Stadium. 

But look at who occupies the # 10 spot… a Big Ten park.  

 
Lubrano Park — Penn State

Penn State is one of several trendsetters in college baseball. The Nittany Lions got a jump-start in the facilities race by constructing a beautiful facility that came with a $31.4 million dollar price tag. Opened in ’06 and first used by the Nittany Lions in ’07, Lubrano Park has a capacity of 6,000. In addition to having a spacious concourse and press/luxury suites area, Lubrano Park also provides a spectacular view of Mount Nittany, which sits in the distance behind the center field wall. It’ll be interesting to see if the ballpark eventually helps PSU become a national player.
