Sports Turf Debuts Renovated Ware County Miracle League of the Okefenokee Field of Dreams at Ribbon Cutting
Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce the completion of the The Miracle League of the Okefenokee’s “Field of Dreams” at Ware County’s Trembling Earth Recreational Complex. The project included renovating the natural grass baseball field to artificial turf to provide a playing surface for children and adults of all abilities, while utilizing traditional baseball and softball games.
In partnership with the Ware County Chamber of Commerce, Sports Turf will host a ribbon cutting to debut the new facility with the public at 2110 Recreation Drive on January 27th at 10:00 am.
“This project has been in our dreams for almost 20 years, and our entire community is thrilled to have a safe, dry and fully accessible field for our exceptional, special-needs players and tee-ball players to play baseball,” The Miracle League of the Okefenokee Board President Berry Tanner said. “Ware County and Sports Turf Company have been great partners helping us build our ‘Field of Dreams, and we know it will make a long-lasting, positive impact.”
The Miracle League of the Okefenokee baseball and softball field renovation allows players from Ware and seven surrounding counties to transcend their mental or physical disabilities while participating in the game of baseball. The new surface provides accessibility for wheelchairs and allows pristine field conditions in any weather. The surface has dual use as a softball or baseball field, while meeting the needs of the Miracle League.
Sports Turf Company installed a Diamond Series turf system by AstroTurf, the inventor of synthetic turf and the original synthetic system for baseball fields across the nation. This project utilized its latest synthetic turf technology, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad and organic, temperature-reducing BrockFILL infill. The system will reduce rainouts and can endure high traffic with little downtime, while providing a consistent, wheelchair-accessible playing surface.
“We’re honored that the Miracle League of the Okefenokee entrusted us with this impactful renovation that is so near and dear to the area,” Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins said. “Our team is a big proponent of the Miracle League, and we’re honored to provide all players with a safe, consistent dual-use surface. The system will truly change the way Parks and Recreation look at Miracle League systems nationwide.”
Sports Turf specializes in the construction and installation of sports surfaces, including natural grass and artificial turf fields, tennis courts and track surfaces. In addition, Sports Turf Company serves as a consultant and owner’s advocate through the entire process of selecting the best facility solutions and surfaces to meet owners’ specific needs.
The Miracle League of the Okefenokee was founded by a group of parents and caregivers. It began with the simple idea of providing children and adults of all abilities the chance to play baseball. The Miracle League of the Okefenokee serves all communities in the Okefenokee area.
