“Moving to turf was not an easy decision for us and came with a great deal of research. We wanted a surface that would bring harmony to both the offensive and defensive components of the game. AstroTurf’s product allowed us the best opportunity to do this without compromising any aspect of our field.”

Head Baseball Coach Tim Corbin,

Marshall Chooses AstroTurf Again

Huntington, WV – Marshall University just hit a grand slam with AstroTurf®. Dot Hicks Field was recently resurfaced with brand new artificial sports turf from AstroTurf. The home of the Thundering Herd softball team became the fourth major athletic venue on campus to feature synthetic turf from the industry pioneers.

The old artificial grass outfield at Dot Hicks was removed in July and replaced with a technologically advanced turf field from AstroTurf in August, in plenty of time for the fall exhibition schedule. AstroTurf’s line of products for baseball and softball are the result of decades of research, development, and fine-tuning. These synthetic turf systems are engineered to replicate the look, feel, and performance of their natural surface counterparts on the diamond. In addition to the outfield, AstroTurf fitted the warning track and batting cages at Dot Hicks with new artificial turf.

“We have looked to AstroTurf in the past to meet our synthetic turf needs and they have come through again and again,” said Marshall Athletic Director Mike Hamrick. “Dot Hicks Field looked great during the recent exhibition season for softball, and we anticipate many more great seasons to come with our new AstroTurf field.”

Dot Hicks Field joins Joan C. Edwards Stadium, Hoops Family Field at Veterans Memorial Complex, and the Cline Athletic Complex among the major sports structures at Marshall surfaced with an AstroTurf field. There is now not a single intercollegiate athletic venue with artificial turf on campus that does not feature AstroTurf.

The Thundering Herd won a school-record 42 games, cracked the Top 25, and received a berth in the NCAA Tournament during longtime skipper Shonda Stanton’s last season at the helm in 2017. First-year head coach Jen Steele looks to start a new era of success as she leads the Herd onto the new and improved Dot Hicks Field this coming spring.

Maroon Tide Rolls on New AstroTurf

Galax, VA – The Galax High School football field was the star of the summer, and its luster has only grown brighter through the fall. AstroTurf® installed a highly anticipated, technologically advanced athletic turf field in July, and the Maroon Tide football team have shined on the new playing surface.

The old sod field at Galax High’s football stadium was removed and replaced with AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend sports turf. This premium synthetic turf system is the same product found across the country at several high profile Division I college football programs. The turf combines specialized fibers, infill, and AstroTurf’s patented RootZone sub-layer to create a football turf with high marks for durability, playability, and safety.

“Our program has reached new heights because of our new Turf Field but more importantly, our whole school system has benefited beyond what we anticipated” said Head Football Coach, Mark Dixon. “We are able to practice outside every day and no longer have to utilize the gym space which has meant more practice time for all of our sports program. I truly believe after seeing the impact of the turf field on our school system that it is a matter of time for the majority of schools will move in the direction of turf fields.”

The field was installed in time for Galax High to get in a few weeks of practice on the new artificial turf before the season kicked off. Since then, the Maroon Tide have gone undefeated at home this season on their new AstroTurf field. It’s another promising start to the season for a squad that won the state championship in 2015 under Coach Dixon, a UVA grad and former NFL lineman with the Miami Dolphins.

Orange Coast College Baseball Gets an AstroTurf Makeover

Spencer Golanka, Sports Editor – Coast Report Online

Wendell Pickens Field at Orange Coast College, host to the OCC baseball team, is under construction to implement a brand-new AstroTurf playing surface, 10 years after the field’s last renovation.

The makeover is set to be finished on Nov. 23, just in time for the baseball team to get acquainted with the new field before the start of their season in early January.

“I’ve felt that Coast has always had the best [baseball] stadium on the outside, but not necessarily the best playing surface. This is going to change that,” OCC athletic director Jason Kehler said.

Although it is traditional to have dirt cutouts around the bases and pitcher’s mound, the new baseball field will be completely covered in synthetic turf.

This has become an increasing trend in the baseball universe, with colleges like Ohio State, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech recently installing all-turf fields.

“There will be turf covering the pitcher’s mound, home plate area, bases and bullpens,” executive director of the Orange Coast College foundation Doug Bennett said. “New fencing will also be added to replace the old fencing, which was thirty plus years old.”

According to Bennett, finding the right synthetic turf was no walk in the park for OCC head baseball coach John Altobelli.Altobelli traveled to Texas, visiting a number of schools to choose between the two most reputable turf companies, AstroTurf and FieldTurf.  AstroTurf was the victor in Altobelli’s assessment, deciding it would suit baseball’s unique movement and gameplay better in the long run.

The benefits of an AstroTurf field severely outweigh those of a traditional baseball field. Having synthetic turf conserves copious amounts of water and diminishes extensive hours of unnecessary labor from Coast players, coaches and maintenance staff.

AstroTurf is also instrumental in fighting off rain damage with its complex drainage system. “Even with the little bit of rain we get here in Southern California, there were drainage issues [with the old field],” Kehler said. “Third base and home plate would flood, and there would be many days where practices or games were postponed.”

The opening game on the newly-turfed field will be OCC’s very first alumni vs. alumni baseball game. First pitch will be at noon on Dec. 22 and it will be open to the public.
