Frederick P. Baker Training Center
A crowd of nearly 200 student-athletes, staff and friends gathered Feb. 15, 2019 in Bemidji State University’s John S. Glas Fieldhouse to formally unveil the Frederick P. Baker Training Center.
The renovation project, funded by a gift from 1961 BSU graduate Frederick Baker, converted the former home of Beaver Hockey into an artificial turf-covered multi-sport indoor practice facility.
Beaver Athletics now has a year-round practice facility that creates new flexibility for teams and coaches when scheduling practices. Spring sports such as softball and baseball have access to space that allows for simulated games and a variety of other activities that were previously difficult or impossible until weather allowed the teams to practice outdoors.
