AstroTurf® and Mid-America Construction on Top of Baseball Boom in Missouri

27 March 2020

The game of baseball is where AstroTurf® got its start with the first installation of synthetic turf at the Houston Astrodome almost seven decades ago. Today, baseball is still a very big part of the company’s business and no place is more evident of that than in the great state of Missouri.

The interest in building high-performing, predictable, and durable baseball playing surfaces is at an all-time high in Missouri and AstroTurf® and their certified field builder, Mid-America Sports Construction, has stepped up to meet the demand of the market. The baseball synthetic turf demand is great in every area of the country, but the Missouri baseball market has seen extraordinary growth recently at every level. Mid-America and AstroTurf have designed, manufactured, and built fields for every level and for every type of program from Raytown High School, to Division II Central Missouri, to D1 University of Missouri, to multi-field complexes such as Creekside Sports Complex and Fountain Bluff Sports Complex, to Major League Baseball’s KC Urban Youth Academy. Any way you look at it, the list of AstroTurf® Diamond Series baseball fields installed by Mid America Sports in Missouri is very impressive.

“We have met the demand for high quality baseball turf systems in Missouri head on,” said MASC President Kirk Grego. “These fields and complexes are right in our wheelhouse of expertise. Combine AstroTurf’s amazing Diamond Series product with our construction capabilities and we have an incredible offering for the market. These types of projects take more of a specialized expertise than other contractors are able to offer, so our customers know that we are the ones that can meet their needs.”

AstroTurf’s relationship with America’s Pastime can certainly be regarded as trending upward. Over 55 D1 Baseball programs have chosen AstroTurf® as their surface provider – that’s more than all other turf companies combined. These next generation fields combine the look, feel, and performance of a traditional grass and clay diamond while requiring far less maintenance. The advanced drainage systems and durable surfacing allow teams to play and practice in difficult weather conditions, a major plus for programs whose seasons typically start in February.

With Mid-America’s turn-key services, self-performing crews, complex project expertise, long-term commitment, full maintenance services, and quick response times, AstroTurf is proud to have such a great partner in the Central United States.
