The roof of the 49ers new indoor practice facility collapsed today, injuring one.

The Charlotte 49ers have been making a lot of changes this year, including introducing projects for new indoor practice facilities for both baseball and softball. The construction of the baseball practice facility has been making a lot of headway this summer.

It seemed a lot of progress was being made today until the recently placed roofing collapsed this afternoon injuring one person.

The injured was not a student or employee of UNC Charlotte, but an employee of the contract company who was then taken to Carolinas Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

As of mid-June, the facility was scheduled to be done and ready for use in October of this year and the project would be officially closed sometime in January.
