CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is teaming up with  the Engel Foundation to bring new life to the historic stadium. 

Officials from UTC and the Engel Foundation signed an agreement that could make the facility available for UTC student and community use as early as this fall for some activities. 

In years past Engel Stadium hosted such baseball legends as Harmon Killebrew, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Babe Ruth. 

Plans call for an expansion of UTC's intramural complex on the site and to make the new facility available for use by the surrounding community. The facility could also contain exhibits that commemorate the history of the stadium. The field could also be used for other events, such as concerts.
