The adjacent 2500-seat outdoor baseball stadium was also designed and constructed as part of the project.

The building also contains locker rooms for 13 athletics teams, a 16,500-square foot weight room, an athletic training room, a 200-seat auditorium, meeting rooms and athletics department offices. Adjacent to the entrance lobby is a Hall of Fame exhibit hall and a large reception hall for banquets and other events.
