COLUMBIA— Missouri's baseball facilities are getting some major upgrades.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that the Tigers want to improve the player experience to gain ground in the Big 12's recruiting races.

It's the first major renovation at Taylor Stadium since 2000 when bleachers and a grandstand were built.

Before players return in January, the team will gain indoor hitting cages, a brick fence bordering foul territory and a new video scoreboard.

Future plans include a clubhouse and coaches offices along the left-field line and more seating near right field.
