Marshalltown, Iowa - It looks like baseball has returned to Marshalltown Community College in Marshalltown, Iowa this spring and along with it comes a new baseball field tarp for this year’s season.

Raincover Ultra™ from Covermaster® will replace the program’s well-used Raincover Plus™ infield tarp as the Marshalltown Tigers take on their college competitors in the NJCAA. Slightly larger than a regular baseball field tarp at 180x180 feet, the dual-sided infield cover offers a combination of strength and durability yet is lightweight and easy to manage with handles at 10-foot intervals around the perimeter. The white/silver color combination is designed to minimize heat buildup, keeping the turf cooler and drier thanks to its exclusive Shield-Tek™ coating technology.

Along with the baseball field cover, the college invested in wind-weighted bullpen tarps and spot covers for the pitcher’s mound and home plate. An easy alternative to installing a full tarp, the covers can protect against rain or alternately help the soil retain moisture during a dry spell.

Raincover Ultra™ baseball infield tarps are the industry’s strongest core raincover, standing up to hundreds of pounds of water and blocking 100-percent of the sun’s damaging rays. At more than 200 pounds lighter than other available covers, it’s the ideal solution for any baseball turf management program.
