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.

 

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.

About Athletic Republic

ATHLETIC REPUBLIC IS THE CULMINATION OF 25 YEARS OF IMPROVING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.

That’s longer than most athletes’ careers.  John Frappier developed the original Acceleration Training programs through careful research and input from a team of sports medicine professionals, athletic trainers and elite coaches. The performance sports training program has evolved into a training system that has followed the same evidence-based approach that formed the foundation for Frappier’s pioneering work: uniting proprietary equipment, sport-specific and age-appropriate training protocols, trainer education and operating resources to help athletes improve their speed, power, agility, and stamina. This foundation would facilitate training center operators turning their passion into a profitable venture.

PLAYRITE and Anderson County High School

This week’s Sporturf blog comes from, PLAYRITE, which has served as the premier sports and recreation construction company in Tennessee for nearly 20 years. A recent installation at Anderson County High School was extremely unique in the fact that the school did not have the funds to install the field initially. However they did have the support of the community. They are working on building the base for the field themselves.

PLAYRITE is working in tandem with the school to transition their natural grass surface to an upper echelon synthetic turf surface from Sporturf. PLAYRITE owner Keith Simmons visited the school on countless occasions to oversee the project and offer guidance to the numerous football supporters that donated their time and resources to ensure that the field was completed.

Jesse Smithey at PLAYRITE had the following to say about the Anderson project:

“Anderson County’s field will be the first that we have done that will have sponsorship logos on the sidelines and even one on the field. That is a trend that will become more and more prevalent in schools and colleges in the coming seasons, as it helps them outfit their programs in turf more quickly and affordably.

By mid-July, weather permitting, the Anderson County Mavericks will have a completed field that features a 50-ounce TrueGrass product from Sporturf. And that 50-ounce turf will totally match the quality to which Anderson County holds its football program.

We definitely want to thank all the great people at Sporturf and those from Anderson County High School who have been a pleasure to work alongside as partners in this venture. We can’t wait until the field is finished.”
