TAMU – Commerce Softball Field

Texas A&M – Commerce celebrates its Softball Team’s inaugural season with another major improvement to the University.

AstroTurf and its Texas-based partner AstroBuilders will deliver bleachers, lights, bullpens, and a very colorful AstroTurf field.  That’s no surprise, since TAMU – Commerce had AstroTurf install the largest midfield logo in history just last year.  (Time lapse video of that installation can be seen here).

COLBY COLLEGE CONVERTS TO ASTROTURF

Waterville, ME, August 11, 2014 — Coming off of their best season in ten years, Colby College field hockey is looking to take the next step. And when the Mules take the pitch this fall, they will be stepping onto a brand new playing surface from AstroTurf®, the originators of the synthetic turf industry.

The new pitch at Bill Alfond Field features the AstroTurf 12 product, a premium knitted nylon system engineered to provide uniform traction, consistent footing, and water retention to maintain wet playing conditions. AstroTurf fields have long been regarded as the unequivocal standard for field hockey performance and are a favorite among coaches and athletes alike for their playability, durability and low maintenance. It’s no wonder AstroTurf is recognized as the Official Artificial Surface Provider of both USA Field Hockey and the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. In fact, a recent NFHCA survey showed that 71% of Division I schools play hockey on an AstroTurf field*.
