Congratulations to the Houston Astros! The winning team took their first-ever World Series championship earlier this month, beating the Los Angeles Dodges 5-1 in Game 7. Not only did the two teams set a World Series record for number of home runs, but Astros outfielder and MVP George Springer tied earlier World Series records by hitting five home runs during the series.
Here’s another interesting stat: all 10 teams that went on to post-season play this year have invested in Covermaster sports surface covers for stadium field protection and field maintenance. Baseball field tarps, such as the Raincover lineup, have helped keep turf cool and dry for teams like the Astros and the Minnesota Twins. At the Twins’ stadium in Minneapolis, customized stadium wall padding is being used to provide an impressive level of safety for players.
On Deck Circles are popular with the Arizona Diamondbacks and at the home stadiums to both the Twins and the New York Yankees, custom stadium seat covers protect their high-quality seating areas during the off-season.
Groundskeepers throughout the MLB franchises know that high-quality baseball field covers and infield tarps are instrumental for optimal playing conditions. That’s why so many teams are using Evergreen turf covers on their turf fields — the popular turf blanket designed to retain natural heat and moisture while speeding up seed germination and promoting deep root development.
Designed to guard against harsh winter conditions, the turf covers are instrumental in getting ready for Opening Day in the spring, thanks to earlier spring green-ups.
