So Hibbs had to raise the money for the baseball facility. Does that mean Devos raised the money for softball? (Rhetorical question)

surely the budgets for the two facilities were reversed in this post, don't you think. 
otherwise, how did judy let that get by her?

Where have the teams been hitting all these years? Are we late to the party? Do most schools already have these indoor hitting facilities? I didn't know they even existed until this year.

You can say "we are years late" on a number of things.

Currently the team has to drive 30-40 minutes if they want to practice when it is raining.  I think there are some former players in the area that run indoor training facilities that help us out if they have availability.

Most college teams in the area have had indoor cages for years.  I know teams in the triangle area have had indoor cages since the early 90s.  They all have since upgraded to really nice facilities.  Now almost every HS travel team organization has an indoor facility. Everyone in C-USA has indoor facilities except for us and FIU.

Wake Forest is currently upgrading to a $14 million indoor facility.

Every day in January in Miami is 75 Degrees with no rain for FIU. Just about the same as it is here for us, I'd say. ::)

Correct. It is just off I-485 near Stallings/Matthews.

Sent an e mail to Coach Hibbs about this past season. His reply ended with "my hope is that we will be allowed to move every aspect of our program forward"
My inference was that there has been resistance to being allowed in the past. Thanks, Phil and Judy!
