The website Stadium Journey has recently released its college baseball stadium reviews for 2016. Stadium Journey is a website dedicated to reviewing stadiums in terms of fan experience around the world. To date, they have reviewed 2,471 stadiums in 58 countries. English Field, Virginia Tech's baseball venue did extremely well in the new rankings which were published Friday. You can take a look at the full rankings by clicking here. Virginia Tech was ranked number 4, behind S.E.C. powers L.S.U, South Carolina, and Mississippi State. English Field was praised because of unique seating and field features. This spring, Virginia Tech announced a 3.5 million dollar naming rights deal with Union Bank and Trust. These funds are to be used in facility upgrades for English Field, and perhaps bump the Hokies higher in coming years.

When we spoke to Virginia Tech head coach Pat Mason this spring, and he was coy about the possibility of future upgrades. It's good to see that the overall fan experience at English Field is so highly regarded in its current state, and will only get better with extra funding.
