Sports field turf for baseball has become such a growing trend that many colleges and universities’ teams the world have chosen to play their games on synthetic grass over natural grass.
The texture of synthetic grass is also ideal for a sport like baseball, as some studies indicate that synthetic grass has traction that is likely comparable to that of natural grass. This is because the polyethylene blades create a surface that is not too hard or too slippery to play on, thus preventing slippage and possible injuries. This type of artificial sports field turf is so traction friendly that it is perfect for athletes to pivot and assume the many baseball stances and positions in their cleats.
There are many cost savings for baseball stadium owners as well, as synthetic fields don’t require the same time intensive maintenance of trimming, watering and mowing that traditional fields need. As you can see, baseball has been on the forefront of the artificial grass trend.
