We seat 1,000 now. The 550 I believe is the amount of chair back seats that will be added. The middle stands will be torn down and rebuilt and the other two sets will remain. We will still seat around 1,000 I believe.
I am pretty sure 550 is total seating - bleachers and chair-backs. I counted the chairbacks in the render, and it looks like 96-ish.
Here is what it says in the article:
"The softball renovations will include replacing all the current grandstands with new stadium seating for more than 550 fans
chair back seating. "
That is more than we seat now, I think. 1K maybe with people sitting in folding chairs.
Troy State's softball bleachers seat a little over 100.
