How FieldTurf Paved the Way to the College World Series

After heated battles in the Super Regionals, eight teams have punched their ticket to the 2018 College World Series in Omaha. FieldTurf is proud to be the home surface of four of the eight programs headed to TD Ameritrade Park: Oregon State University, University of Washington, University of Texas and Texas Tech University. The remaining four, University of North Carolina, Mississippi State University, University of Arkansas and the University of Florida all play on natural grass at home.

Driven to redefine home field advantage, the FieldTurf DoublePlay series is the trusted surface of hundreds of NCAA Baseball programs and local high school teams and municipal parks.

The FieldTurf baseball philosophy is simple: create systems that are tailored to the program’s needs and wants. Our DoublePlay series offers the highest level of fiber quality, of which FieldTurf is renowned for, with the added peace of mind that our system design will match any desired playing characteristics. From fast to more grass-like, FieldTurf can tailor the surface to any programs’ desires.

Showcased during the Super Regionals at Goss Stadium at Coleman Field (Oregon State); UFCU Disch-Falk Field (Texas); and Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park (Texas Tech); coaches, players and fans rave about the DoublePlay series:

“Man, this stuff is good. I believe that playing on our FieldTurf field has helped in terms of getting our guys used to consistent play and focusing on making plays. It has been a contributor to our success and has helped Oregon State Baseball strive to reach the next level.” Pat Casey, Head Coach, Oregon State University

"The new FieldTurf surface being installed on Dan Law Field is an incredible investment in our student-athletes’ safety and performance, and it will also be a big selling point as we continue to recruit future Red Raiders here to Texas Tech." Tim Tadlock, Head Coach, Texas Tech University

All FieldTurf baseball & softball systems now come equipped with ToughBack, a unique layer applied to the system backing, resulting in a super tough layer once hardened. Toughback is an optimal solution for dealing with high-use areas which are prone to cleat damage.

Oregon State and North Carolina kick off the action Saturday, June 16th. With the Finals scheduled for June 25th, we’re in store for an intense ten days.
