Dalton, GA – There are many ways to measure success in a business in any given year. Two of the ways we are measuring our success is by the popularity of the product and quality of the customer. The AstroTurf® Diamond Series scores off of the charts in both of these categories in 2019.
AstroTurf® has installed more Division 1 Baseball fields than all other synthetic turf companies in the industry combined. And the list of valued clients has grown yet again with some top programs installing the Diamond Series this year. Some fields are conversions from natural grass, some are moving to AstroTurf® away from their old turf provider, and some are new stadium builds. And then there is AstroTurf’s long-time friend, Vanderbilt, who not only won a National Championship in 2019 but also upgraded its AstroTurf field to a new Diamond Series RBI system.
Vanderbilt’s Coach Tim Corbin had these nice words to say about AstroTurf, “When we set out to consider upgraded options for the playing surface at Hawkins Field, AstroTurf® made the most sense to our program for a variety of reasons. Since our first installation prior to the 2013 season, we have experienced a vast amount of success on our AstroTurf surface, and the product and technology behind it have only continued to improve. We are always looking to provide a cutting-edge experience for our student-athletes, and we are confident that AstroTurf® and their team will continue to exceed our expectations with their product and customer service.”
In addition to the Vanderbilt resurfacing, AstroTurf® also installed new fields at Appalachian State, the University of Connecticut, Oklahoma State, the University of Evansville, and the University of Pittsburgh. This is in addition to the over 50 Division 1 Baseball schools that have already selected AstroTurf® as their surface of choice.
But AstroTurf’s success in 2019 is not only in the D1 market, as the company has installed baseball fields for every division and at almost every level during the year. Minor League teams, countless high schools, and sports complexes all over the country chose AstroTurf® as their preferred supplier for synthetic turf.
“It’s really amazing when you look at the year that we have had,” said AstroTurf Director of Baseball Operations, Aaron Klotz. “The success of our baseball system is a testament to the research, development, testing, and commitment that our company has made in providing our customers with a system that is specifically designed to mimic the performance of each area of the field. With our new baseball specific metric testing for our systems, we have taken the game to the next level. The game is now played with heavy metrics that are supported by data and I’m pleased to say our Diamond Series Systems back that up. No other company can boast a baseball team and resume, quite like the team we have assembled at AstroTurf. A team of coaches at all levels of the game that not only know turf, but know the game and what is needed for our clients. People that coaches trust, not only for their resume and track record, but for the people they are. 2019 was great, but I’m really looking forward to 2020 already!”
The Diamond Series 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.
For athletes and sport enthusiasts, AstroTurf® has redefined the way the game is played. The brand offers advanced, state-of-the-art, multi-sport and specialized synthetic turf systems with proprietary engineered technologies. A growing number of high schools, colleges, professional sports teams and municipalities continue to select AstroTurf-branded products for their premium quality, technical superiority, and safety.
