Mobile, AL - A rush order saved the day for the Mobile BayBears minor league baseball team in Mobile, Alabama this summer. Just days before their Fourth of July home game, the club was in desperate need of a new baseball field tarp.
It’s not the norm to have an infield tarp ready to go at a moment’s notice. Fortunately, luck was on the team’s side when the franchise contacted Covermaster on June 28, which just also happened to be a Friday. A Raincover Premier baseball field cover was in stock, boxed and waiting for a new home. At 170x170 feet with handles spaced 15 feet apart on all four sides, the durable yet lightweight infield cover was the perfect option for the last-minute request.
Everything fell into place, said Covermaster Regional Representative Gerry Hackett. There was just enough time on the Friday afternoon to pull the cover from the plant and have it picked up by a local shipping broker that same day. The new baseball infield tarp arrived on the following Tuesday in time to protect the field from any threat of rain.
Raincover Premier offers superior performance and easy handling without the extra weight of comparable infield tarps. As the industry standard, each full infield tarp features vinyl-reinforced handles with center grommets at 15-foot spacings. Optional storage covers are available to protect against sun damage when stored alongside the field.
