Floyd Casey Stadium
Floyd Casey Stadium is a stadium in Waco, Texas. It is primarily used for football, and is the home field of the Baylor Bears. Floyd Casey Stadium is located about four miles from the Baylor campus. It opened in 1950 with a game against Houston, and has room for 50,000 people. Originally known as Baylor Stadium, the stadium received its current name at halftime of the Homecoming game on November 5, 1988, when it was renamed for Floyd Casey by his son, university trustee and longtime booster Carl B. Casey of Dallas, who gave $5 million towards an $8 million renovation project. The stadium has a long history of renovations as well. In 1998, the stadium installed SportGrass, a leading natural grass surface. In 2005, the stadium underwent massive renovations to extend the Grant Teaff Plaza to memorialize Baylor's most prestigious head coach, Grant Teaff. The extended plaza created much-needed updates to the stadium's façade. The stadium is an elongated oval shape, running southeast-northwest, with large grandstands on the sidelines. The southeast endzone is cleared, with athletic marks painted on the ground and the large LED scoreboard behind it. (Prior to the creation of the current athletic marks, the area was painted gold, with "BAYLOR" painted in large green block letters.) The northwest endzone has seating in front of the Carl & Thelma Casey Athletic Center, site of the football offices, training facilities & stadium field house. Prior to the building of the stadium, the team had played at Carroll Field, an on-campus field last used in 1935, and Waco/Municipal Stadium on Dutton Avenue.
