AstroTurf Announces New Regional Construction Hub in California

Fresno, CA – In the ongoing quest to serve their West Coast customers more efficiently and effectively, AstroTurf® has announced the opening of a new construction and sales hub in Fresno, CA. This hub joins other ones like it in Pittsburgh, PA, Austin, TX, Lexington, NC and the corporate headquarters in Dalton, GA.

With office and warehouse space located in Fresno, CA, this operation is centrally located within the state to service both Northern and Southern California projects. The office will serve as a home base for AstroTurf’s West Coast Team which is comprised of a dedicated group of professionals who work day in and day out to provide the highest quality sports surfaces for their clients.  

A tremendous growth in market share, coupled with the unique demands of California, justify AstroTurf’s expansion and investment.

The opening of the Fresno hub goes hand in hand with AstroTurf’s goal of offering a one stop, one source, and one team approach for their customers.  This approach in combination with our dedicated partners offer our clients coverage that is unmatched in the state of California.

Corpus Christi Is Covered in AstroTurf

Corpus Christi, TX – The Corpus Christi Independent School District hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for its latest athletic turf installations, and now the school district can tie a bow on a multi-phase renovation project that utilized AstroTurf® exclusively. Cabaniss Baseball Field was officially reopened on February 27th, two weeks after the softball field was completed, and both venues now feature cutting edge synthetic turf from AstroTurf.

The baseball and softball fields join a long list of athletic fields that were converted to AstroTurf as part of voter-approved bond issue that enabled the district to upgrade its infrastructure. Last summer five of the six area high schools had AstroTurf installed in their football stadiums, and the Cabaniss Sports Complex received AstroTurf’s groundbreaking Trionic™ turf for the soccer pitch, the first such installation in the state of Texas.

“We have received wonderful feedback from the community about our renovated fields,” said CCISD Athletic Director Brenda Marshall. “We are grateful to the Corpus Christi community for approving the bonds that helped make these projects possible, and we look forward to supporting our athletes at our high-quality facilities for years to come.”  

Both fields now have new artificial turf from AstroTurf’s Diamond Series line of synthetic turf systems. The Diamond Series is comprised of integrated turf products that are specifically engineered to emulate the look and feel of natural surfaces. The artificial grass portions replicate the ball bounce and underfoot feel of natural grass, while the skinned infield and base paths use turf that delivers accurate sliding distances and mimics the look of clay. The premium grade Diamond Series baseball and softball turf chosen by CCISD also features AstroTurf’s RootZone sub-layer, a patented innovation that enhances the turf’s durability and consistency.

In addition to providing excellent performance and resilience, the AstroTurf fields require less maintenance than traditional surfaces and have much better drainage. That translates into less rain delays, cancellations, and reschedules due to wet weather. For a city with a coastal climate like Corpus Christi, that’s a huge factor and one that could make Cabaniss Sports Complex an attractive venue for baseball and softball playoffs and tournaments in the future.

Swank Sports, a certified AstroTurf installer, handled installation of the baseball and softball fields, as well as all of the previous AstroTurf fields brought in to CCISD last summer.

AstroTurf Hits Home Run with New Fields at Mira Costa

Manhattan Beach, CA – Over the last 7 years, Mira Costa High School had been in need of a major overhaul of its practice fields. This year, they’re enjoying an athletic footprint that’s beautiful, well expanded, functional, and environmentally friendly.  Last fall MBX (an athletic, performing arts and extra-curricular foundation) and the school partnered to construct a unique multipurpose field. During this time the Baseball Booster Club decided to replace its old turf. Both fields feature cutting edge turf technology from AstroTurf®, and the reviews have been glowing.

Mira Costa West Field, the new multi-sport field on campus, is the distinctive centerpiece. The custom-design field employs over 145,000 square feet of AstroTurf’s Green Series DT synthetic turf. This high-end product utilizes a dense matrix of slit film fibers and AstroTurf’s patented RootZone sub-layer for maximum durability. Foregoing traditional crumb rubber infill, the DT system uses ZeoFill, an organic material made from a mineral found in vitamins and water filters. The corner of the new multi-purpose field incorporates a Baseball Practice Field as well with AstroTurf’s Diamond Series and GreenPlay infill. The two systems come together seamlessly at the baseball’s infield. Both synthetic turf systems are buttressed by a Brock pad for increased shock absorbency. Mira Costa West Field enjoys a two-tone color palette and is lined for use by football, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, rugby, discus, and marching band.  

“The field is amazing – it’s been everything we researched and hoped it would be and then some. Ever since Eric and I visited the headquarters in Dalton, Georgia, we’ve been impressed with their commitment to quality and excellence. My follow-up visit to inspect our materials during fabrication only supported this belief as they walked me through many quality control measures and check-points.” – Johnnie C. Morgan, founder of Coastline Construction Management, Project Manager, and Turf Consultant for the MB/X Foundation, a foundation that supports Manhattan Beach Unified School District, with their growing motto “Beyond the Classroom.”

Of course the “Eric” he is referring to is none other than Dodger legend and current Fox MLB analyst Eric Karros. The 1992 National League Rookie of the Year and LA’s all-time home run king has been an integral part of the athletic renovations at Mira Costa High School, whose hallways have been occupied at various times by his three children. The resurfaced baseball field is now one of the premier high school baseball facilities in Southern California.

“I’m blown away by the state of synthetic turf today, specifically the innovative systems that AstroTurf has developed,” said Karros. “Touring the plant in Dalton and speaking to their people gave me an insight into the level of expertise that goes into the engineering of their products. It’s light years beyond the stuff I used to play on.”

Carl Osterhaus Field, where the Mustangs play their home games, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art baseball field with over 17,000 square feet of AstroTurf’s Diamond Series synthetic turf system. Like the West Field baseball practice field, the Diamond Series at the Varsity Main Playing Field is specifically designed to emulate the look and feel of traditional baseball surfaces with specialized turf that replicates the performance of natural grass and clay. Mira Costa’s new baseball field includes 100% EPDM infill, an organic infill product that mitigates the use of traditional crumb rubber.

Both the baseball field and Mira Costa West Field were installed by AFE Sports, AstroTurf’s West Coast partner. AFE also handled the base construction and main drainage for the fields. Award-winning construction management firm Bernards managed the site work (retaining walls, new fire road, and expanded field) portion of the West Field project as general contractor.

Coastline Construction Management and MBX worked in unison with the School District over a 7 year period to pull-off this unique endeavor. Coastline CM with MBX designed the West Field effort, funded the turf and main drainage components, and managed the entire renovation. Johnnie further quoted “We are extremely proud and pleased with our assembled Team; Prizm Group (Civil Engineer), Burch Architects, Bernards, and AFE our Turf Contractor of choice. AFE’s team is a top notch organization and we are extremely proud of our shared results!”
