Vero Beach, FL - The former Historic Dodgertown multi-sport facility in Vero Beach, Florida is getting a new lease on life under MLB management. Renamed the Jackie Robinson Training Complex, the youth-focused venue will serve as a year-round hub to diversify and strengthen amateur and up-and-coming talent for baseball and softball.
Some may remember Dodgertown as the spring training site of the Los Angeles Dodgers until 2008. This spring, MLB commemorated Robinson’s 100th birthday by announcing the renaming of the center and launching a year-long schedule in honor of the Hall of Famer. Along with a new name, the complex is undergoing renovations that will include a new indoor training facility..
MLB is a long-time Covermaster customer and they quickly reached out for product for the updated training center. Included in their order was a new Raincover Ultra baseball field tarp and TarpMate roller.
Raincover Ultra infield tarps offer the industry’s strongest core raincover, allowing the removal of hundreds of pounds of water from its surface. Turf stays cooler thanks to 100-percent sunblock, and less surface friction means reduced dirt accumulation and easier snow and ice removal. At more than 200 pounds lighter than other baseball field tarps, Raincover Ultra makes for faster and easier handling. Two colour combinations are available — white/silver to reduce heat buildup and black/silver to draw warmth into the field in colder climates.
