Alabama opens new hitting practice facility

  Alabama baseball's newest hitting and pitching practice facility is only Phase I of its renovation project.

For the past few months, Alabama athletics has been hard at work constructing its newest baseball practice facility. On Wednesday, the Tide officially opened their brand-new indoor hitting and pitching facility, allowing for year-round practice for current and former players.

The facility includes premiere video, sound and lightning technology to boost Alabama's preparation and analytic capabilities. This is just the first step of the Crimson Tide baseball program's structural renovations of Sewell-Thomas Stadium, scheduled for completion at the start of the 2016 baseball season.

Alabama will play the majority of its home games in the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium for the 2015 season.
