BOISE — Boise State University is about a year away from having its first baseball season in years -- but the Broncos still don't have a place to play.

The Idaho Statesman reports then-Boise State President Bob Kustra announced back in April of 2017 that the school was dropping wrestling to revive the baseball program -- with the 2020 season targeted for the sport's return.

But University spokesman Greg Hahn confirmed with the Statesman that the school is still in the negotiation stage with potential developers for a facility.

Hahn says the University has narrowed its focus to two developers -- Hellas Construction and the Gardner Company.

But there is not enough time now to get a stadium built for the 2020 season.

Gardner Executive Vice President David Wali says a stadium would generally take 12-16 months to complete.
