In early 2023, Sports Turf completed the Miracle League of the Okefenokee’s “Field of Dreams” at Ware County’s Trembling Earth Recreational Complex. The project included renovating the natural grass baseball field to artificial turf to provide a playing surface for children and adults of all abilities, while utilizing traditional baseball and softball games.
The Miracle League of the Okefenokee baseball and softball field renovation allows players from Ware and seven surrounding counties to transcend their mental or physical disabilities while participating in the game of baseball. The new surface provides accessibility for wheelchairs and allows pristine field conditions in any weather. The surface has dual use as a softball or baseball field, while meeting the needs of the Miracle League.
Sports Turf Company installed a Diamond Series turf system by AstroTurf, the inventor of synthetic turf and the original synthetic system for baseball fields across the nation. This project utilized its latest synthetic turf technology, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad and organic, temperature-reducing BrockFILL infill. The system will reduce rainouts and can endure high traffic with little downtime, while providing a consistent, wheelchair-accessible playing surface.
