Sports Turf to Renovate the Vikings' Baseball and Softball Field

Sports Turf Company, a specialty sports construction and surfacing company, is proud to announce it has been awarded the baseball and softball field renovations at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Ga. The project consists of renovating both the baseball field and softball fields to artificial turf.  

Sports Turf Company will renovate the Vikings’ existing natural grass fields to an artificial turf system that will reduce rainouts and endure high traffic with little downtime. The artificial turf system features AstroTurf’s Diamond Series turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad, and organic 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 25 millimeter thickness to improve player safety, provide more effective drainage, and ensure a firm, consistent playing surface for the lifetime of the field. 

“We’re honored that Lowndes High School has entrusted us to renovate their facilities and look to us as the expert in athletic facility construction,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “The system will utilize AstroTurf’s most advanced turf system while maintaining the play of the game.”

Sports Turf specializes in the construction and installation of sport surfaces, including natural grass and artificial turf fields, tennis courts, and track surfaces. In addition, Sports Turf Company serves as a consultant and owners’ advocate through the entire process of selecting the best facility solutions and surfaces to meet their specific needs.
