BLACKSBURG - The renovation of Virginia Tech's English Field remains a work in progress, so the new stands will not be ready for the baseball team's Feb. 27 home opener against Radford.

The ballpark is undergoing an $18 million renovation.

"The weather kicked us in the teeth," associate athletic director Tom Gabbard said Thursday in an interview.

Fans at the game will have to sit in the amphitheater-style seats terrace down the left-field line.

But Gabbard said some of the new stands will be ready for the Hokies' March 9-11 series with Pittsburgh.

The new suites, bathrooms and concession stand are ready, said Gabbard, but will not be in use at the home opener because the work site will be off limits to the public.

So portable bathrooms and a temporary concessions area will be used for that game.

The new press box will be used for the game.

The new picnic area near right field will not be ready for the home opener or the Pitt series.
