Millikin University Chooses AstroTurf for New On-Campus Baseball Stadium

Decatur, IL – Millikin University has just completed the construction of their new on-campus baseball stadium and it is truly a thing of beauty.  The new baseball facility located south of the Decatur Indoor Sports Center (DISC) includes an AstroTurf field, lights, press box, concessions and batting cages. Seating includes grand stand bleachers, seat back chairs and a patio area, all elevated above the AstroTurf synthetic surface.

Millikin University is now the only school in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW) with an on-campus baseball-only facility with a full turf field and a clubhouse. With completion of the Workman Family Baseball Field, the university now has the distinction of being one of the top facilities in the country for NCAA Division III baseball and softball programs.

Millikin’s new field features the AstroTurf Diamond Series RBI System which includes multiple artificial turf components that have been specifically engineered to emulate the look, feel, and performance of both the grass and clay portions of a baseball field. Diamond Series turf systems from AstroTurf® are well-known throughout the sport of baseball for delivering the ultimate in playability, durability and ballpark aesthetics. The AstroTurf Diamond Series is the preferred system of choice for schools at every level. For example, well over fifty Division 1 Baseball schools are playing on the Diamond Series which accounts for more than all of the other synthetic turf company’s D1 Baseball installations combined.

“We couldn’t be more impressed with how our new AstroTurf field feels and how it plays”, said Brandon Townsend, Millikin University Head Coach. “Our guys are in love with it. There’s not a bad hop out there. We don’t have to worry about a tarp anymore, it could rain right now and we would be ready to go.  There are just so many fewer concerns with this field. The process was just amazing and we couldn’t be happier with the product.”

The entire design of the field was well-thought out and there was great attention to detail in planning for the purpose and performance of the surface. The outfield is designed for multi-use and can accommodate a 300’ long practice soccer field and a 270’ long practice football field. The infield has been calibrated to provide the speed of play best fitting the desired play of Millikin University baseball. Also, areas of the field are specifically designed to be removed and replaced annually at areas of high use including the pitcher’s mound and the batter’s box.

Coach Townsend added, “In the present….This stadium will set the standard for baseball facilities around the country that schools will strive to achieve. For the future…This amazing facility will help raise our program, recruiting and enhance our student-athlete experience for many years.”

Mid-America Sports Construction of Lee’s Summit, MO expertly installed the field at Millikin. Mid-America is AstroTurf’s exclusive distributor in the central region of the United States. MASC offers turn-key services, self-performing crews, complex project expertise, long-term commitment, full maintenance services and quick response times. Mid-America Construction is truly AstroTurf’s “Heart” in the “Heartland”.

Millikin University becomes a member of a long list of AstroTurf Diamond Series customers that include elite programs such as Vanderbilt, Michigan, Kentucky, Duke, Ohio State, Washington State, West Virginia and many, many more.

Claremore High School’s new AstroTurf Field has Everything from A to Z

Claremore, OK – Claremore High School has recently resurfaced their football stadium field and it has just about everything from A to Z, or should we say AstroTurf to Zebras? Lantow Field now sports bright, and bold striped end zones and a new AstroTurf® playing surface that is sure to be the envy of every team that visits.

The field itself is AstroTurf’s most popular turf due to its combination of long-lasting performance and game day good looks.  The RootZone 3D3 system results in minimal infill splash and better shock absorbency, while improving safety, playability and durability. Also included in the system is Trionic®, AstroTurf’s patented new wonder-fiber.  Trionic® is a blend of polyethylene and nylon fibers that is quickly revolutionizing the synthetic turf industry.

The field has made quite an impression on those that have seen it. MaxPreps has even featured it in their article of Top Ten Amazing Turf Fields.  The huge “Zebras” text that spans 26 yards is impressive, but what really has garnered a lot of attention is the intricate striped design of the end zones. This was achieved by Claremore selecting AstroTurf’s PreFab option.

The PreFab option is another innovative approach from AstroTurf® that helps insure that the customer gets the best looking and most durable field possible. On site installation and old fashioned inlaying can be tricky during less than ideal weather conditions. AstroTurf’s PreFab option allowed Claremore’s end zones to be shipped with all of the markings already inlayed. The markings were cut with a robotic water jet at 60,000 psi for crisp, clean cuts. This insures that inlays are tight, seams are strong and the results are superior. All of this takes place in a climate controlled facility with expert supervision that results in excellent quality and on time installation. Find out more about the PreFab option at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaxNP_a9mKE

Claremore Public Schools Superintendent, Bryan Frazier had some very nice words about the new field. He said, “We are absolutely thrilled with our new AstroTurf field! We were confident that we had come up with a nice design but to see it after completion is just amazing.  The end zones are certainly getting a lot of attention but the entire field is a thing of beauty.”

The new field was expertly installed by United Turf and Track of Arcadia, Oklahoma.  United Turf and Track is a premier sports construction company that is known for its unrivaled attention to detail, quality, and long-term customer commitment. They have a tremendous history of constructing sports projects with unmatched quality, delivered on time and on budget.

UCONN Field Hockey Sticks with AstroTurf

Storrs, CT – You can’t mention the elite programs of field hockey without beginning with the University of Connecticut. The same is true for AstroTurf® when discussing premier playing surfaces for the sport. It’s just natural for the two iconic names to team up yet again as the Huskies have installed a new field hockey turf system at the George J. Sherman Family-Sports Complex.

UCONN Field Hockey has one of the most accomplished field hockey programs in the country with 16 Big East Conference titles, 15 Final Fours, 2 National Runner-ups, and 5 National Championships. Even more impressive are their 3 National titles in the last 6 years.  For a program with this type of continual success, it is important to keep all of the elements of the formula at the same high level, and the field is no exception. This is a big reason why the Huskies chose to go with AstroTurf® once again.

The field itself is a world class Poligras Platinum system. Poligras Platinum is a complex, high-tech, tufted system. This surface utilizes non-directional, polyethylene sports yarn to provide optimum ball surface interaction.  This system is the same as the one used at the last Olympics in Rio.  Actually, under the Sport Group umbrella, AstroTurf & Polytan collectively has been the surface for 75% of the Olympic Field Hockey games.

The system sits over a 10 mm E-Layer® that was installed by Nagle Athletic surfaces. The E-Layer® is a paved-in-place monolithic pad that has excellent shock absorbency and is totally solid underfoot. Nagle is a premier installer having achieved a reputation for providing unparalleled quality, outstanding service and exceptional value to their customers.

UCONN’s legendary coach had some kind words about the system and the workmanship. “We’re really excited about this product from AstroTurf®. It is called Poligras and it was used in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio”, said Nancy Stevens, UCONN Head Field Hockey Coach. “They got the field done in about a month which is a tribute to the team that put it in. They are hard workers and they did a beautiful job.”

Coach Stevens is considered field hockey royalty in her own right with the most wins of any field hockey coach in D1 history with 572.

AstroTurf General Manager, Dave Wheaton added, “This is our top of the line, world-class field hockey system and it provides the highest level of performance and playability that is available in the market today.”

While AstroTurf does enjoy almost 80% of the Division 1 market and is the choice of organizations at the highest level of the game, it still offers high-performing field hockey surfaces to meet every need and budget.

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.  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, as well as a preferred supplier for FIH.  By supporting FIH, USA Field Hockey, and the National Field Hockey Coaches Association for years, AstroTurf has demonstrated time and again its commitment to growing the game and providing access to more high-quality pitches at all levels of the sport.
