The University of Nebraska Board of Regents voted 7-0 Friday to rename the baseball practice facility “The Alex Gordon Training Complex” and the new volleyball court at revamped Bob Devaney Sports Center “Terry Pettit Court.”
Now a left-fielder for the Kansas City Royals, Gordon was an All-Nebraska player at Lincoln Southeast and former All-American third baseman at NU. He and wife Jamie Gordon recently made a $1 million donation to the facility, which provides an indoor training area for the baseball and softball teams.
