De La Salle High School and AstroTurf are Making History in California

CONCORD, CA. — AstroTurf, the leading synthetic turf company, has teamed up with a tradition-rich high school to make history in California.  De La Salle High School, an all-boys school founded in 1965, chose AstroTurf for its new 75,000-square-foot athletic field....

San Jose State’s New Softball Field is Latest in Partnership with AstroTurf

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The San José State University Spartans softball team spent almost two years playing their home games away from home. Now, the softball team is back on campus and at home with the May 2018 opening of the Spartan Softball Field, which features a synthetic turf field by AstroTurf, the inventor of artificial turf and a well-known innovator in the industry.

The Spartan Softball Field represents a continuation of San José State’s partnership with AstroTurf. This is the second playing surface AstroTurf has completed at the Mountain West conference member school. The first was inside the 30,456-seat CEFCU Football Stadium.

Both fields were designed by California’s Sports Surfacing Design firm, Verde Design and AstroTurf partner/distributor Valley Precision Grading installed the surface.

As the softball team moves into the future, players will field balls and lace base hits on a synthetic field that plays like the real thing.

All of the outfield, the warning track and foul territory are covered in the RootZone Diamond Blend artificial grass. Decades of research and development, coupled with guidance from elite coaches and baseball lifers, have lifted the Diamond Series to the top of the market in college baseball and softball turfs. Each component of the field is specifically engineered to replicate the look, feel, and performance of a natural surface, including realistic ball bounce and accurate sliding distances. In other words, it plays like grass where it’s supposed to and like clay where it should.

Kansas State Upgrades to AstroTurf Trionic

Manhattan, KS – When Kansas State made the decision to replace their football turf at Bill Snyder Family Stadium they elected to stay with AstroTurf as their preferred synthetic turf provider. KSU also elected to install one of the most technologically advanced products on the market today, AstroTurf RootZone 3D3 made with the new Trionic fiber.

AstroTurf, the inventor of artificial turf and a well-known innovator in the industry, has installed a fiber at Kansas State that is a feat of chemical engineering never before achieved in the history of the synthetic turf industry. Trionic is the only fiber on the market that blends polyethylene and nylon molecules into a single fiber.  The result is a fiber that is more resilient and stronger than polyethylene, while being much less abrasive than nylon. Not only will KSU receive a superior fiber but they will also be installing AstroTurf’s RootZone system, which is the top choice for athletes and field owners alike. The RootZone is a texturized layer of fibers that draws down to encapsulate infill, resulting in minimal rubber splash, better shock absorbency, and less infill migration than basic systems.

“We couldn’t be more excited about opening play on our new AstroTurf field this fall,” said Gene Taylor, Kansas State Athletic Director. “Every school wants their stadium to be a showplace and this field is going to be the beautiful centerpiece to our great facility. The new surface will greatly enhance our student-athlete performance on the field as well as the viewing experience for our fans and television viewers across the country.” 

The field has a similar design to KSU’s previous field, utilizing the Wildcat logo at mid-field and the university’s traditional Royal Purple color in the end zone. One new addition is the Big 12 logos on each side of the field.

Since 1990, Kansas State has been a very difficult place for opponents to play as the Wildcats have been dominant at home. They have recorded a record of 144-36-1 which translates into a .798 winning percentage. The Wildcats hope to continue their home field advantage when they open up season play September 1st against the University of South Dakota and again for their Big 12/SEC showdown with Mississippi State at home on the following Saturday. The University of Texas will be the first Big 12 opponent to visit Manhattan and play on the new field when they come to town on September 29th.

Lock Haven University Upgrades to AstroTurf Trionic

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. — When the Lock Haven University football team takes the field this fall at Hubert Jack Stadium, they will play on one of the most technologically advanced surfaces in the world.  On top of that, they will be making tackles and scoring touchdowns on what is widely considered the safest product in the industry.

Lock Haven has replaced its former synthetic turf field with AstroTurf’s Trionic fiber — a breakthrough blend of blend polyethylene (PE) and nylon fibers that is quickly revolutionizing the synthetic turf world. To produce Trionic fiber, polyethylene and nylon molecules are fused into a copolymer and then extruded as a single fiber. The process chemically blends polyethylene with nylon, providing the softness of current fibers with the durability, strength and resilience of nylon. These qualities played a key role in Lock Haven’s decision to replace its field with AstroTurf Trionic.

“I am extremely happy that Lock Haven University made the decision to replace our old playing surface with one of the safest products in the industry AstroTurf,” said Dr. Tom Gioglio, Lock Haven Director of Athletics. “The AstroTurf life cycle cost was reasonably priced for being a state of the art product that utilizes Trionic fiber. I was also impressed with the knowledgeable sales team that ensured the timely execution of the installation so we did not have to reschedule our events.”  

The Bald Eagles christen the field on Sept. 8 with their home opener football game against Clarion University. Jack Stadium, which opened in 1975, is named in honor of Hubert H. Jack, the former Lock Haven football head coach from 1946-68 and head wrestling mentor from 1942-64. The field features a stunning crimson and white bald eagle at the 50 yard line.

In addition to superior performance, Lock Haven will enjoy unmatched durability. So far, more than 700,000 square feet of Trionic fiber have been installed at carefully selected beta sites around the country, with varying usage amounts and ultraviolet (UV) exposure.
