Worldwide Installs Fielder’s Choice at Durham College
Recently longtime Sporturf dealer Worldwide Turf installed popular Sporturf product Fielder’s Choice at Durham College’s women’s softball facility. The Worldwide team provided design and build services for Durham College’s brand new baseball facility. Construction began in March 2020 and the surface is 100% Sporturf synthetic turf. This state-of-the-art facility features many completely customized components. This project started with the removal of the existing natural grass diamond, followed by the construction of a dynamic aggregate base and installation of a performance pad, synthetic turf with custom lines, Durham Lord’s logos, rubber infill, double batting cages with netting, bullpens and custom dugouts.
The facility includes a customized scoreboard, flag poles, and LED field lighting (also included in the bullpens and dugouts). The field is equipped with an award-winning pole-to-pole tension netting, with an integrated and customized backstop wall pad system, windscreens. The 400 seat custom bleachers include VIP seating for 100 and an integrated press box and perimeter fencing.
The Ultra Cross® knotless low-profile net barriers are Dyneema® fiber construction, which makes it exceptionally strong, providing spectators industry-leading 95% see-through visibility, which is why it’s the preferred netting of Major League Baseball venues.
