An anonymous family donated 60 million dollars to the school to build a state-of-the-art baseball complex, complete with world-class training facilities, brand new lounges and suites, and high-tech recovery equipment. The BU baseball team will play the majority of their home games at NYSEG Stadium this season as renovations are underway. Taking a moment to reflect on the full weight of what this means for the university, BU President Harvey Stenger said he hopes the gift spurs something even greater. VESTAL (WBNG) — On Tuesday, Binghamton University officials announced the largest gift in university history. Joined by the chancellor of the SUNY system along with athletic department staff and players, President Stenger said construction is set to begin next week, with the goal of completing the entire facility in time for the 2021 season. “It also helps other donors recognize if they have a passion, could be in the humanities, the arts, the performing arts, that we want to hear from them, and that we will help them meet their passion,” Stenger said Tuesday. According to SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson, this is the second-largest gift in the history of the SUNY system, after a gift of $150 million to SUNY Stony Brook back in 2011.
