Schlitt Park Upgrades Baseball Field with Sporturf™

Recently Sporturf™ dealer, All Synthetic Group-Midwest, and J & L Strawn Sports Construction installed a project at the legendary Schlitt Park located in Springfield, IL. Schlitt Parke is a 5-acre neighborhood park that was added to the park system in 1971.
Jeremy Strawn of All Synthetic Group-Midwest stated, “A few months ago ASG and J&L Strawn Sports Construction were approached about designing and renovating a local field here in Springfield, a field that over the years has become a staple in the Springfield Baseball community and a place where so many kids over the years hit their first ball…and now those kids are parents who are bringing their kids to play there too.”
Springfield Southwest Baseball Association and the Springfield Park District wanted to transform and equip Schlitt Park with lighting upgrades, backstop fencing, netting, windscreens, dugouts, press box and an all-weather synthetic infield. All together, this created a dramatic change in the facility and made the field suitable for play for years to come.

 

Webb City Chooses Midwest Synthetic Turf and Sporturf

Recently Midwest Synthetic Turf was contracted to install a new football field for Webb City high school after the existing turf reached the end of its useful life. The existing drainage base was not draining correctly so the necessary repairs were added as part of the project.  School officials were very interested in pad underlayment as a way to improve GMax performance so Craig Shonk and his team installed a Brock pad under the field.

Midwest Synthetic Turf was selected by the turf Committee based on their expertise and reputation as ASBA Certified Field Builders.  MWSTP once again teamed with Byrne and Jones to complete the base work.  School officials had a lot of confidence in this team given the amount of work they have completed in the area over the last few years.
