New/old drawings of the baseball stadium?

I was recently in the Architect's building and came upon these drawings for what appear to be an FAU baseball stadium. I know I posted the computer renderings done a long time ago but this is different.

Thing is, I don't know if it's new or old. Maybe the computer renderings are the new direction when (if) we get the money…?

Anyway, thought you might want to see so I grabbed a couple of quick shots with my camera. Sorry the quality isn't great but you should be able to get the general idea:

Tried to get one wide and two close-ups. Looks more like the FAU style than the previous one and even looks like it includes some shops? Interesting nonetheless.

I like them.  Pipe dreams though until we can get a guy in the Pros that will bankroll it.

Maybe we can get A-Rod's wife to make a public announcement that her husband would like to make a large donation…. ;D

Are there any teams that need a spring training facility, or maybe a minor league team for Boca so that we could share the cost burden and build a nice stadium while we are at it.  The teams could even have joint ticket offers, so that we get a larger fanbase for our owls and it might even help with town-gown relations

Angelos did try that. I don't remember all the specifics but there was money out there from the state of Florida for cities and other municipalities to build or improve their baseball facilities in order to keep the major league spring training camps in Florida. Angelos tried to get this but needed the assistance of the city of Boca Raton since the grant's language specified a "city" or some other municipality like a village or county. A college did not fit the bill. Boca Raton did not want to do it. So it never happened. I believe the grants could be up to $15mil. There were more details than I can remember.

that was a couple of years ago and I believe the O's were one of the target teams but the main team was the guys that moved into the Vero Beach facility after the Dodgers left

Over two years ago, I broke a story in a small local newspaper (owned by Forum Publishing Group) about the Indians talking with FAU on a multi-field facility on our campus. Don't forget that we have the Mets at the PSL campus, Marlins and Cards at the Jupiter campus.

There was state money available through the state's Tourism division. The deal fell apart and can't remember why.

Maybe the BOT took too long to decide on the details?
