Oklahoma State to build $16 million indoor practice facility

Oklahoma State will begin construction on an indoor practice facility on August 1, 2011.

Thanks in part to the help from booster Sherman Smith, upon completion the Cowboys will have the premier indoor facility in the Big Twelve and one of the tops in the country.

The structure will be over 90,000 square feet.

There will be no air conditioning or heating units, but a number of retractable garage type doors on each side of the structure.

Baseball and softball will be able to take infield practice inside and there will be a 100-yard track on one side of the facility.

The estimated cost for the facility is $16 million. You can see renderings of the facility, right here.

Sherman Smith passed away on June 6, 2011. He originally gave the university a large amount of money as part of the endowment, but his family has since agreed to fund the IPF project.
