The land also will include parking for coaches and players. Narvel Weese, WVU's vice president of administration and finance, said the stadium would rely on parking arrangements with WVU Hospitals for spectator parking.
He said there is no official agreement between WVU Athletics and WVU Hospitals on the parking arrangement, but he doubts there will be any trouble.
"They're affiliates, so it's not like they're dealing with complete strangers," he said.
WVU Hospitals is planning a three-story, 109,000-square-foot outpatient care center at University Town Centre.
WVU Assistant Athletic Director Michael Fragale said the center is to have about 750 parking spots and he is confident the baseball stadium will be able to work out an arrangement with WVU Hospitals.
He said WVU Athletic Director Oliver Luck has attended meetings with the property developer, as well as hospital officials.
"I don't think we would get to this point unless they were confident that was going to be worked out in the future," he said.
Amy Johns, spokeswoman for WVUH, said the hospital system has had only "very preliminary discussions" with university athletics over parking.
Fragale said the university hopes to begin advertising the design-build contract for the stadium later this month. The university plans to award that contract by October and begin construction in December.
Construction is slated to wrap up by December 2014, with the stadium's official opening in February 2015.
