AstroTurf’s prestigious reputation in the baseball world is making traction in softball as well.

It’s not because what’s good for baseball must be good for softball. Rather, our deep understanding of what it takes to emulate grass and clay sets us a step above the rest.

Benefits of Using AstroTurf

Using any synthetic turf eliminates mud and prevents rain-outs. But with the Diamond Series, bunts, slaps, and bounces play like they should. Customization is key in our softball installations and is achieved by specialized fibers, differentiated pile heights, and tunable infill ratios. Durability in the high use infield area is boosted by the use of nylon, giving softball clients a good return on their investment. The Diamond Series product lineup is available a la carte for each area of the softball field.

Our Work


“The previous [nine] installations have been a tremendous success. Not only are they a great company to work with, but the technology and sport-specific engineering of the AstroTurf product line is without peer. We looked at other options for the new softball stadium, but once again AstroTurf proved to be the best choice.”

Athletic Director Jeff Barber,
Liberty University

“We’re excited to be playing our home games on the new AstroTurf surface at Niemand-Robinson Field. After just one weekend, we were able to play a pair of games that in past years would certainly have been postponed due to inclement weather. It looks great and plays consistently without the heavy maintenance of traditional grass and clay. Plus it enables us to practice even when conditions are less than optimal, which is critical in the winter months leading up to the season.”

Former Head Coach Dick Blood,
Cornell University

“We are entering our sixth season on our surface and I can honestly say it is the best surface we have played on in that time. Our surface is consistent every day, may it be practice or game day. Our lines are always perfect. It looks and plays great. The outfield plays like a well-manicured Bermuda grass outfield and our infield turf plays very similar to dirt. The difference is there are never any cleat marks or divots to worry about.”

Often, synthetic turf fields are conversions from natural grass fields, replacements of existing turf fields, or new builds on previously undeveloped land. Less common (and more difficult) are conversions of sites with existing buildings. The Texas A&M Commerce softball stadium was to be built where a dormitory had previously stood. Demolition of the dorm was handled by a separate contractor. Unfortunately, the demolition contractor left approximately two full truckloads of debris behind. Moreover, support piers from the previous building were left anchored into the site. These donations were less than ideal for building a high quality, flat, well-draining athletic field.


The AstroTurf construction team took no shortcuts. Instead, they painstakingly raked every inch of the subgrade, removing rebar, concrete and bricks to permit a perfectly built field. They jackhammered the piers. After the site was totally free of foreign debris, they moisture conditioned the soil to ensure a stable subgrade that would allow no movement. After building the drainage later, AstroTurf-trained installers put in TAMU Commerce’s memorable softball field. It’s no surprise that the selected such a bold field design — the University’s football stadium features the largest midfield logo in the world.
