VESTAL, N.Y. — Binghamton University on Friday opened its new $60 million, on-campus baseball facility.

The Binghamton Bearcats were set to play UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) late Friday following stadium tours and remarks from Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger.

The $60 million anonymous gift — the largest in the school’s history — made the complex possible, Binghamton University said.

The 84,000-square-foot complex includes the new baseball stadium, clubhouse, and indoor training facility. The venue offers increased fan seating, locker rooms, batting cages, coaches’ offices, study spaces, and an athletic-training room. The indoor training facility includes a turf baseball infield with a four-story ceiling, providing athletes the ability to practice year-round.
