OSU baseball: Cowboys excited for move to O'Brate Stadium
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State coach Josh Holliday always takes a peek when visiting new O’Brate Stadium.
He looks at the position of the sun. He feels the direction of the wind. He wonders what the baseball would do that day.
“I’m excited to see when we do get in there, how it plays,” Holliday said at Monday’s baseball media day.
With OSU’s baseball season opener 18 days away at Grand Canyon University, the Cowboys are preparing to build from last season’s run to the NCAA Super Regional tournament. But midway through the year a stadium change will happen.

OSU will move from Allie P. Reynolds Stadium to O’Brate Stadium on March 20. And the excitement is building.
“I think we've all been waiting for this for a pretty long time,” senior Carson McCusker said.
But there is an unknown. The stadium has similar dimensions, but it could play entirely differently.
“That will be the fun part,” Holliday said. “Just seeing the first towering flyball and seeing how far it actually goes, and seeing how the sun shows up and the wind patterns.”
