Sports Turf Completes Baseball and Softball Field Renovations at Lowndes High School
Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce the completion of the baseball and softball fields at Lowndes High School. The project consisted of renovating both the baseball field and softball fields to artificial turf.
“The renovation to both fields are huge for our program,” said Lowndes County Schools Athletic Director Randy McPherson. “The artificial turf system installed raises the bar for our coaches and athletes in terms of performance, durability and safety. The reduced maintenance and quick turnaround the artificial turf provides for games is an added bonus.”
Sports Turf Company renovated the Vikings’ existing natural grass fields to an artificial turf system that will reduce rainouts and can endure high traffic, with little downtime. The artificial turf system, features AstroTurf’s Diamond Series turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad, and rubber infill., BrockFILL. AstroTurf’s Diamond Series is a performance artificial turf system that combines slit film and nylon monofilament fibers with a RootZone layer of texturized fibers for optimum durability and better shock absorbency. The revolutionary Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad technology features large drainage channels, shock-absorbing structures and 25mm thickness to improve player safety, provide more effective drainage, and ensure a firm, consistent playing surface for the life-time of the field.
“We’re honored Lowndes High School has entrusted us to not only renovate their facilities, but to look to us as the expert in athletic facility construction,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “The system we installed is an elite system designed specifically for baseball and softball. The players and coaches will be able to feel the difference in footing, ball bounce and playability."
