Missouri plans for new sports facilities

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- University of Missouri curators have approved a request by the flagship Columbia campus for a new softball complex and a new facility for indoor football practices.

A master plan for the Columbia campus endorsed by curators Thursday includes the two new athletic facilities. The projects were supported by both university system president Tim Wolfe and campus chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.

The proposed softball diamond would replace 34-year-old University Field and be located east of the Hearnes Center on what is now a university parking lot.

The new football facility would be attached to the west side of the Mizzou Athletics Training Complex. The football team's current indoor practice space at Devine Pavilion would still be used by other university teams.
