Turface Athletics Partners with More Than A Game in its Tara Hills Complex Renovation
BUFFALO GROVE, IL. – Turface® Athletics, a leader in sports field construction and maintenance, is pleased to donate its field maintenance solutions to the non-profit corporation, More Than A Game (MTAG), in support of its Tara Hills Project. With the help of 30 volunteers, the project will repair four baseball fields at the Tara Hills Complex in San Pablo, Calif., from Wednesday, January 30 to Saturday, February 2, 2019, in order to make them playable and safe for children 12 years and younger in the local community. Turface Athletics provided both field conditioner and mound clay for the cause.
Totaling $25,000.00 worth of dirt, paint, bases, machinery rentals, event production and volunteer and kids apparel, the four-day event boasts an extensive to-do list. From the removal of infield weeds, leveling the playing surface with new dirt, applying Turface field conditioner and replacing wood in the dugouts to the washing, painting and repairing of concession stands and bleachers — the Tara Hills Project aims to unite, educate and empower the San Pablo community. The event will conclude with a community celebration, offering music, food games and more.
“Turface Athletics is proud to be a partner of this uplifting and influential organization — More Than A Game,” said Jeff Langner, business manager at Turface Athletics. “With the assistance of Ewing Irrigation, we are honored to contribute multiple pallets of essential field maintenance products, helping provide a safe and sustainable environment for the town’s youth.”
As a partner for seven years, Turface Athletics joins a network of esteemed sports teams, sports apparel companies and top universities that all believe in the MTAG mission of helping others through the game of baseball. The company will continue to donate its field maintenance materials in support of the non-profit’s community renovation efforts across the nation.
