Baseball Turf White Paper | SporTurf

Backed by research and testing.

Synthetic turf offers many positive things to outdoor sports activities normally played on a natural surface. One positive is that it maintains the same physical traits in all four seasons. Synthetic turf can withstand more frequent use, allows for a multi-use venue, offers faster drainage and requires less maintenance than a natural surface field. However, with all of these positive attributes you get from having a synthetic turf surface they mean very little if the players have to react the field and not the ball.

Sporturf™ has worked hard to develop a sport specific system that allows you to play the game just like you would on a natural field. These systems provide a performance level that is most representative of a natural grass field to coaches and players at all levels. If a ball reacts differently after striking the synthetic field surface than it would on a natural surface, misplays would likely occur. Sporturf™ believes in these systems so much they chose to put them up against actual science and used a 3rd party independent test lab to back up what they’re saying. Sporturf™ believes the synthetic surface should not change the tradition of the game or how it’s played.
