Anaheim, CA - The start of a new baseball season is exciting for players and fans alike. But each year in Anaheim, California, Head Groundskeeper Barney Lopas takes it a step further with new equipment to welcome the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim back to the playing field.
The Angels are long-time Covermaster customers, said regional representative Thomas Bell, and products like mound tarps and batting practice turf protectors help to dress up the field at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in time for the season’s first pitch. BP Zone Infield Turf Protectors, spot covers, On Deck Circles and BP Zone Batting Cages are among the items that arrive new to the stadium each year.
Durable custom-printed mound covers sport the Angels’ team logo and on deck circles — one with the MLB logo and the other with the Angels’ logo —put team branding in the spotlight during both games and practice days. Colorful, eye-catching graphics stand up to wear and tear thanks to strong, scuff-resistant materials and state-of-the-art digital printing. The new two piece cage collar is a proven way to protect the turf around the batting cage area.
The stadium has relied on many Covermaster products over the years. Though Lopas likes a fresh look each season, some products have stood the test of time and are still in use — like their full baseball field tarp ordered in 2010.
