Birmingham, AL - The Birmingham Barons are no strangers to the benefits of baseball field tarps, regularly reaching out to COVERMASTER® for new infield protection for their field in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Double-A South minor league team will soon receive their newest RAINCOVER ULTRA™ 170x170-foot infield tarp well before the start of the 2022 baseball season in April. The Chicago White Sox affiliate team currently plays at Regions Field, but their long history goes back to their founding days in 1885 and includes many decades based out of Montgomery, Alabama.

The new baseball field cover, with handles at 10-foot spacings and grommets on all four sides, is more than 200 pounds lighter than other available field covers but strong enough to support hundreds of pounds of surface water. The dual-sided infield cover uses a silver/white color combination to reduce heat buildup under the baseball raincover. Each field tarp is equipped with the COVERMASTER® exclusive SHIELD-TEK™ coating technology to help keep turf cooler and drier.

The industry’s strongest core field cover is also extremely durable and provides a 100-percent sunblock. Customers investing in the latest Raincover technology not only protect their fields, but benefit from savings in both time and labor costs.
