About this project
In Florida, rain delays are common when playing on natural grass baseball fields. Rollins College decided to take steps towards a solution when renovations to Alfond Stadium at Harper-Shepherd Field began in summer 2018. With a focus on converting the infield to a synthetic turf system, the school selected a FieldTurf product to replace the natural grass and clay infield that was exhausted. Collaborating with FieldTurf, our experienced turf crews completed the installation of a new synthetic surface at the end of September. According to local media, the coaches and staff are most excited about the playability improvements and decreased maintenance required to get the Rollins College Tars playing ball after a storm.
