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.

PowerHouse is one of our most advanced system designs that provides high resilience and increased comfort and safety. The series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world. PowerHouse truly is a workhorse and will withstand the rigors of wear and tear for many years.

In his UFC debut, Tyron executed an impressive 36-second KO of Jay Heiron- and put the welterweight division on notice. This year Tyron is defending his welterweight champion title at UFC 209 against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson on March 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The two are pairing up after their original bout during UFC 205 which ended in an epic back-and-forth draw.  Experts are predicting another hotly contested fight with another dramatic finish.

Sporturf™ is proud to stand behind Tyron as he defends his title and look forward to celebrating another championship win!

Concordia University Installs Sporturf™ Field

In 2016 Midwest Synthetic Turf Professionals was contracted to replace the existing worn out synthetic turf surface for Concordia University and replace it with Sporturf™ PowerHouse.

PowerHouse 2 1/2” pile height was chosen by the school to add additional sand for weight to stabilize the turf surface during heavy rain events.  Due to the natural terrain, the existing turf experienced some movement due to rainwater rushing onto the field so MWSTP considered those issues when planning the new field.

The PowerHouse series is made up of some of the most proven and durable fibers in the world making it the ideal choice for the Concordia Bulldogs.

Concordia University

Concordia University is a private, coeducational institution of higher learning located in Seward, Nebraska, about 25 miles west of Lincoln.

Belhaven Bowl Stadium Chooses Sporturf™

The Belhaven Bowl Stadium, a $4 million project at the center of campus, opened with a football game against East Texas Baptist in October.

The highly ranked Belhaven University stands among select Christian colleges and universities with national influence, and has been repeatedly named one of “America’s 100 Best College Buys.” Belhaven University offers 70 areas of study including academic majors and concentrations across a full range of disciplines, as well as a variety of Master Degree programs.

The University was founded in 1883, today; the University has achieved the distinction of being among only 36 universities nationally accredited in each of the major arts.

The installer was Sporturf™ dealer Jim Bateman of Xfit Brands. Bateman, who is on the Board of Trustees for Belhaven stated, “I couldn’t afford to put anything but the best, since it was in my backyard. I have complete trust in Sporturf™.”

Bateman’s team installed TrueGrass on the field and outfitted the hill next to the field for students to congregate on with FreshGrass. They chose FreshGrass for its strength and plush nature, anything less would have allowed infill to pool at the bottom of the hill due to the steep slope.  belhaven-install
