Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park is the site of the Texas A&M Baseball Camp and serves as the home to the Texas A&M Aggies . Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park underwent a major renovation that began on June 7, 2011. Some new features of the stadium included an expanded concourse and concessions area, luxury suites, a new press box, club seating, two grass berms, expanded locker rooms and coaches offices, a student athletic center, and extended seating closer to the field. However, the seating capacity was decreased from 7,000 to 5,400 to accommodate the changes (although with standing room only will still hold over 7,000). Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park reopened on February 17, 2012 for the first game of the 2012 baseball season.
