I should mention that the old place is a classic, though it will certainly turn off people expecting individual seats and the like. Get there while you can. It's an old WPA project that's served Eugene for 70 years... and the BBQ chicken sandwiches still come recommended.
Frankly, I thought an announcement was at least two years away, with a new basketball arena being a higher priority. Shocking, really.
They're already generating some talk of a replacement stadium and options other than Eugene Civic Stadium, if the announcement itself wasn't shocking enough. Stay tuned, I guess.
Sad part... the only dirt is on the pitching mounds (including bullpens). Everything else is artificial surface.
