Lindenwood Chose Fielder’s Choice by Sporturf

A few years ago the Lindenwood University athletic department, located in St. Charles, MO, was making the final transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II, and many areas on campus were going through renovations. Part of those renovations were new baseball and softball fields outfitted with synthetic turf by Sporturf dealer Environmental Turf Services, LLC.

“Lindenwood is excited to install the new Enviroturf baseball and softball turf fields,” said John Creer, Director of Athletics. “This seems to be the direction collegiate programs are going and it is nice to be at the forefront of this move.”

“This is an exciting time for softball and baseball with the installation of the turf,” said softball head coach Don Loberg. “Not many fields have this opportunity which will allow us to practice and play games when other fields are wet and unplayable. It will save us time and money with not having to seed, fertilize, water the field, and tarping.”

The renovation of the fields was expected to help bring bigger and better athletes to the school in addition to improving the facilities.

According to Creer, “We also anticipate these new fields will assist our coaches in recruitment of top caliber student-athletes and further development of our programs.”

The product installed was Sporturf Fielder’s Choice. Fielder’s Choice is a product designed with the game of baseball in mind. This product should be installed outdoors on a compacted aggregate base. Since it is custom designed for baseball, Fielder’s Choice has the added durability designed to reduce infill splash and migration which is extremely important in gameplay.
