Testimonials

“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,
Vanderbilt University

“Our players, coaches and staff have been extremely satisfied with our AstroTurf fields at the Sherman Smith Center. When it came time to replace the turf at Boone Pickens Stadium, we decided to stick with AstroTurf.”

Athletics Director Mike Holder,
Oklahoma State

“The turf plays beautiful and without a doubt it is the nicest turf I have ever been on. The bounce and the roll of the ball is like playing on a well-manicured grass field… The decision to use AstroTurf for our new stadium is the best decision we made for our new 8 million dollar complex.”

Men’s Head Soccer Coach Bob Gray,
Marshall University

“AstroTurf is the preferred surface of our sport for a reason. Their turf has the speed and consistency you just can’t find in other surfaces.”

AstroTurf is the Exclusive Synthetic Turf Provider of Boston College

Golden Eagles Keep Soaring with New Diamond

Tulsa, OK – Oral Roberts University has developed a nationally recognized baseball program, and the Golden Eagles are having one of their best seasons to date. So what’s new? They’re doing it on a brand new, cutting edge diamond from AstroTurf®, the leaders in artificial turf systems for baseball.

ORU made the switch from natural grass to artificial turf back in January, when certified AstroTurf distributor Mid America Sports installed the new turf. J.L. Johnson Stadium now features a state-of-the-art Diamond Series playing surface from AstroTurf. For this synthetic turf system, the infield “grass” portion of the field is comprised of a combination of advanced fibers that mimic the look, feel, and playability of natural grass. Base paths, warning tracks, and batter’s box all feature a proprietary fiber blend of shorter pile height that accurately emulates clay. The pitcher’s mound has a specialized variation of that clay-like turf. All of the elements of the playing surface have been engineered for optimal ball bounce, ball roll, underfoot feel, and durability.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with AstroTurf Diamond Series for our baseball field,” said Head Coach Ryan Folmar. “Whitey (Doug White, Director of baseball operations for AstroTurf) is a baseball guy and understood our expectations. The follow up and service after the completion is second to none. We’re happy to be a part of the AstroTurf family.”

The Golden Eagles came into this season fresh off of their 16th Summit League title and 26th trip to the NCAA Regionals in 2016. Coach Folmar’s squad has already amassed over 30 wins in 2017, and ORU is a stellar 21-5 at home on the new turf. At the end of May, the Summit League Championships will be played at J.L. Johnson Stadium, an excellent showcase for the school’s outstanding baseball program and its impressive new AstroTurf diamond.

Next generation baseball surfaces like this one from AstroTurf have grown increasingly popular in the college game. In fact, since 2009 more Division I baseball programs have chosen AstroTurf than all other artificial turf brands combined. These fields combine the look, feel, and performance of a traditional grass and clay diamond while requiring far less maintenance. In addition, the advanced drainage systems and durable surfacing allow teams to play and practice in difficult weather conditions, a huge plus for college teams whose seasons begin much earlier than their professional counterparts. AstroTurf synthetic turf baseball surfaces can be found all over the country, including at Hawkins Field, home of the 2014 College World Series Champion Vanderbilt Commodores.

Corpus Christi ISD Goes All-In With AstroTurf

Corpus Christi, TX – The Corpus Christi Independent School District is embarking upon a major infrastructure improvement plan, and that includes several sports venues upgrading to AstroTurf®. Five CCISD high school football fields and one soccer field will receive brand new playing surfaces from the pioneering artificial turf company.

Carroll, King, Moody, Ray, and Veterans Memorial high schools are each scheduled to have cutting edge AstroTurf fields installed this summer. Additionally, the soccer pitch at Cabaniss Athletic Complex will be converted to AstroTurf. The football stadium at Cabaniss already features AstroTurf, as does Miller High School’s Buccaneer Stadium.

“We are thankful to our voters and excited about moving forward with this project,” said CCISD Athletic Director Brenda Marshall. “We’re looking forward to welcoming our CCISD student athletes and community to beautiful and fresh fields this coming season.”

All of the new fields will be covered with the AstroTurf RootZone 3D3 Blend product. This premium turf system is comprised of high micron monofilament, slit film, and patented RootZone fibers with a sand and rubber infill. The combination creates a playing surface that delivers the durability needed for high usage while maintaining game-day good looks.

Swank Sports, a certified AstroTurf distributor, will oversee conversion from natural grass to AstroTurf for all six projects, beginning on June 1st. The plans call for over 500,000 square feet of turf to be installed by the end of July. That’s the equivalent of covering thirteen acres in AstroTurf in two months time!

Purchase of these new fields was made possible by a $194 million, voter-approved bond that passed last November. The majority of the funds will be used for academic facility construction in the district, with a portion directed for athletic facility improvements including the new athletic field conversions.

Field Hockey National Championships are Won on AstroTurf

One thing is for sure, NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championships will all be won on AstroTurf in the United States for at least the next four years.  The NCAA has recently announced their venues for their National Championships for the next four years and the field hockey venues that they chose all have one thing in common, they are all at universities that have selected AstroTurf as their playing surface of choice.

The University of Louisville will host the games in 2018, Wake Forest University in 2019, Old Dominion University in 2020 and The University of Michigan in 2021. The games at Louisville, Wake Forest and Old Dominion will all feature AstroTurf System 90, which combines the traditional knitted nylon top cloth with a 3/8th inch closed cell pad. The knitted nylon surface is unique to AstroTurf and preferred because it provides tight tolerances, non-directional play and a uniform surface. It is the “original” AstroTurf carpet for Field Hockey-exclusive fields and has traditionally been used by most elite programs. The games at the University of Michigan will feature Poligras Platinum CoolPlus system. This is one of the first installations of a Poligras field by AstroTurf® since SportGroup acquired the industry originators. SportGroup is the parent company of Polytan, which manufactures Poligras.  Along with the A12 and AstroGrass products that AstroTurf has been famous for these many years, Poligras Olympia rounds out an impressive portfolio of hockey systems available for its North American clientele.

This past year saw a Field Hockey National Champion crowned on AstroTurf as well.  The University of Delaware won the trophy playing at Old Dominion University.  The Delaware Blue Hens will soon have an AstroTurf field to call their own as installation of a System 90 field is scheduled to be completed by July.

This just goes to show that success breeds success. That is true in Field Hockey and the artificial turf business. Ask any Division I Field Hockey coach with a synthetic field what product they have and chances are they will say AstroTurf. That’s because AstroTurf is the preferred system of 83% of those schools.  AstroTurf fields have long been regarded as the unequivocal standard for field hockey performance and are the favorite among coaches and players alike for their playability, durability and low maintenance requirements.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that AstroTurf is only for Division I schools.  There will also be National Championship games played on AstroTurf at Division II Slippery Rock and at Division III Spooky Nook. Truth is, AstroTurf can be found at every level of Field Hockey and at any place where excellence is expected and championships are pursued.
