This story has been updated to add another proposal the Board of Regents approved.

The Board of Regents approved to redesign Bailey-Brayton Field and to support marketing efforts for the Cosmic Crisp apple on Friday at the Board of Regents retreat in Seattle.

The $10 million project, also known as Back to Omaha (BTO), will be covered through private donations, according to a press release. WSU Athletics already received $4 million worth of donations, according to a document. There is an additional $2.5 million worth of pledge donations that has yet to be collected before construction begins.

The Board of Regents issued the remaining $3.5 million, according to a press release.

Amenities for the project will include a locker room, coaches offices, team meeting rooms, players lounge and recognition of WSU’s baseball history, according to the press release. Construction is set to begin this summer and finish by 2021.

“Gaining approval for this project, which is funded solely on private donations, is a testament to a lot of hard work by many people,” said Pat Chun, WSU director of athletics, in the press release. “Bailey-Brayton Field was a necessity and provides Marty Lees and his staff the opportunity to attract top talent to Washington State, develop current talent, and return the program to a place of prominence.”

The Board of Regents also approved $10.1 million in a span of four years for marketing campaign purposes of the Cosmic Crisp apple, according to the press release. Royalty revenue and trademark rights to the apple will be used to pay for the campaign.
