Baseball Field Construction with 3G Turf

OUR PASSION YOUR SPORT – BASEBALL

The playing field surface for teams in the MLB (Major League Baseball) is unregulated. Professional baseball teams therefore have the choice of natural grass or artificial turf in their stadiums. Several teams in the MLB have played on artificial turf for over ten years and continue to do so. Professional baseball fields with artificial turf include:

  • Roger’s Centre Stadium, home of Toronto Blue Jays.
  • Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of Minnesota Twins.
  • Tropicana Field, home of Tampa Bay Rays.

Surface variations of the baseball field can have a significant effect on ball behaviour, fielding and base running. In the 1980’s many baseball teams replaced their artificial turf playing surfaces with natural grass due to complaints in these areas.

In the present day, many professional players testify that new third generation artificial turf performs just like natural grass. These technological advances in addition to benefits of easier maintenance, better drainage and the possibility of multi-purpose sports fields now make artificial turf an appealing prospect. Tropicana Field, which opened in 1990 at a cost of $130 million, is an example of how artificial turf is used in the modern game. Tampa Bay Rays finished as champions of the American League (East Division) in 2008 with 81 games played on artificial turf at Tropicana Field.

GreenFields have installed hundreds of sports turf systems to provide a high performance playing surface. Give your baseball team a superior home advantage with GreenFields sports turf systems.

This is my last World Cup and I have to say that the stadium and the pitch are amazing. The second pitch in the GreenFields stadium is a nice pitch as well. It’s different from most pitches in Argentina. The pitch is very fast so we love to play here, it’s a very nice pitch.

We are really enjoying the pitch, it is smooth and fast and the main thing is that the field is not slippery. It is good for fast hockey.

We think the pitch is very good, it’s nice and flat and has a good even ball bounce. We find the field is fast and we like to play quick hockey as well so I think you will see good hockey during the World Cup.

Newcastle International Hockey Centre is very pleased with the Greenfields TX product. We have three artificial surfaces and have at all times sourced the best product to suit our centre since its opening in 1989. The players have indicated the surface runs true, sure footing with very little under foot friction, and excellent for all levels of skill.
