The home of the Diamond Hogs has a new name for the future after a pledge from the Walker family.
Baum-Walker Stadium at George Cole Field, previously known as Baum Stadium at George Cole Field, received its new name after the UA Board of Trustees approved the name change unanimously Thursday.
The Willard and Pat Walker family pledged $5 million to the program in December after supporting the team since the early 1990’s. The pledge will go toward a Baseball Performance Center in the right field corner of the stadium.
The Hogs take the field at 3 p.m., February 15, against Eastern Illinois.
