Demolition began Monday on the University of Houston's Robertson Stadium. The 70-year-old facility is being torn down to make way for a new stadium, which will open in August 2014.
The southeast concession stand was the start of the structure demolition. The demo project is expected to last six to eight weeks.
Houston supporter Joe Chastang was the first to run the heavy machinery responsible for the demolition. Chastang won the opportunity in an auction at Houston Athletics' Hall of Honor event on Nov. 9.
