Cliff Hagan Outfield The Kentucky baseball team calls Shively Field at Cliff Hagan Stadium home since 1979, with renovations done in 200 2 and again following the 2006 Southeastern Conference Championship season that saw the first ever NCAA Lexington Regional played at the facility.

A new era began in Kentucky baseball history in 2002 as then head coach Keith Madison and the Wildcats moved into their new lair, the $4.2 million Shively Field at Cliff Hagan Stadium. The state-of-the-art baseball complex replaced the twice-renovated facility that UK baseball had called home since 1969, when it was built as part of the Bernie A Shively Sports Center. In 1990, the facility underwent a $520,000 renovation to refurbish the stadium, the largest single improvement of its kind until last season's historical project.    

The renovations in 2002 were divided into three categories. The stadium now has 2,000 chair-back seasts and a state-of-the-art press box. Featuring radio and television broadcast booths, the new media facility is among the best in the SEC, complete with elevators and restrooms for working press and game management personnel. Able to accommodate a capacity crowd of 3,000, Cliff Hagan Stadium also has two luxury skyboxes that are available for private parties.

Phase two added the construction of traditional, old-style brick walls, reminiscent of classic American ball parks. Extending down both the left and right field lines, the walls meet a freshly painted hunter green outfield fence that replaced the older blue fence. Updated logos and advertisements were also placed on the structure that continues its 340-365-390-350-310 dimensions.   

After the 2006 SEC Championship season, the Kentucky athletic administration decided to invest some money into some exterior improvements of Cliff Hagan. Among the improvements which debuted during the 2007 season, was a new state-of-the-art video board, which enhances the viewing experience for fans.

Also added during the 2007 offseason was a 150 seat deck in the parking lot behind right field. The outfield fence was also lowered and padded to give fans a clear view of the diamond from anywhere in the outfield parking lot.

While Cliff Hagan Stadium is a beautiful place to call home, the Wildcats plan on moving into a new facility in the future which will increase the viewing experience for fans and create a road SEC atmosphere.
