Dear Bobcat Family,
St. Thomas University will soon have new seating for STU Bobcat fans, courtesy of long-time university partner, The Boras Sports Training Institute (BSTI)!
Designed to accommodate 336 spectators in tiered seating, the new Boras Sports Training Institute Grandstands will also offer a press box, and a picnic area near the third base entrance with standing room only seating.
BSTI, founded by renowned baseball agent Scott Boras, oversees the training of professional MLB players who are clients of the Boras Corporation. In 2015, BSTI donated STU’s state-of-the-art batting facility, which are constructed to professional baseball standards, giving the Bobcat Baseball Program a major league quality facility to practice hitting. In addition, the donation included training equipment that is now used by the Bobcats in the University’s fitness facility in the Fernandez Family Center.
These renovations to the Paul Demie Mainieri Field give Bobcat Baseball a championship edge. Not many collegiate baseball teams can say they train at the same facilities as elite Major League Baseball players! The new grandstands will offer a better experience for our players and spectators, and will give STU student-athletes a stadium worthy of national champions!
God Bless and Go Bobcats!
David A. Armstrong, J.D.
