In a luxury box overlooking the still-relatively new artificial turf at Finley Stadium, complete with its fresh yellow soccer pitch lines, Bryan Peeples talked this week about fake grass, the 50th anniversary of AstroTurf and the World Cup champion, United States woman’s national soccer team.
Outside, a dreary gray day refused to relent from dropping buckets of rain on the field.
Peeples, president of Dalton-based AstroTurf, can go into meticulous detail about the engineering behind the state-of-the-art turf products his company produces like the AstroTurf 3D surface in Finley.

Belle Vernon, PA– The new AstroTurf field at Belle Vernon Area High School will be unmistakable. The field will be gold.
The existing AstroPlay surface by AstroTurf was originally installed in 2001. Its 14 year lifespan is due to a nylon RootZone® and excellent maintenance on the part of the school district. This time around, Belle Vernon Area has decided to amp up their field selection for the Leopards.
“Our field lasted nearly twice as long as the original warranty, so the decision to buy from AstroTurf again was an easy one. But this time, we really wanted to think outside the box and to show our school pride. The Board of School Directors and I are so very proud of our District, we wanted to honor the Leopard tradition with a color that stands out,” said Superintendent Dr. John Wilkinson.
