Whitestown, IN - When construction of the relocated Little League Central Region Headquarters facility wraps up this month, a new Raincover Ultra™ baseball field tarp from Covermaster® will be on hand to help keep the turf in top condition.

Located in Whitestown, Indiana, the new 15-acre facility will host the Little League Softball Central Region Tournament along with the Great Lakes and Midwest tournaments. Amenities will include a full-size, lighted Little League field with stadium seating and bleachers, concessions stand, batting cages, and a press box. The new baseball field cover will ensure that the turf field is game ready, using the exclusive Shield-Tek coating on the Raincover Ultra™ to keep the turf cooler and drier.

Covermaster® has been providing Little League International with turf management tools for more than 10 years, including an infield tarp in 2012 for the former Central Region facility and another for their international headquarters in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 2018. In addition to the 100x100-foot infield cover, the new headquarters ordered a TarpMate™ roller for easy installation, removal, and storage.

The surface of Raincover Ultra™ resists dirt accumulation and comes in two color combinations — one to minimize heat buildup and the other to either draw heat into the field at more than 200 pounds lighter than other available field covers, the Raincover Ultra™ baseball infield cover is easier to handle, saving time and labor costs.
