    Default Tigue Moore Field 12/27/2009

    Here's a few shots of the field and some fans arriving early. The small roller they are useing will be replaced with a larger one to finish the compacting and make it smooth. They are also useing a small compactor for the edges. They told me they should be laying carpet in about a week, weather permitting.......Fans happen to be my son and his wife and my grandchildren. I had to put them in. Hope you don't mind.....

    Great pics of the field with a great explanation of what is going on at the field. You have a beautiful family. I don't blame you for including them!

    I look forward to your pics next week when they lay the carpet!!!

    any idea of what e warning track will be. if a guy is tracking down a ball he relies on the different surface of the warning track to let him know the wall is fast approaching, i dont think his feet will be able to tell him if the turf has changed color, im still all for the turf but just a thought

    What does Tulane have? I think coach Robe is using their field as a loose model.

    The warning track will also be turf, but there will be a drop like a normal field.

    The construction cam has it snowing on the field. Maybe that's why they are running a little late on completion........

    Bump. Just because I thought it was cool to look at these "old" pics, about a different renovation.

    How often do they have to replace the turf?

    They replaced the infield last year I believe. May have done the whole thing, not sure. My guess is baseball infield needs to change more frequently than the outfield or a football field due to repetitive usage

    The good thing about the turf setup is you don't have to replace the whole base, just the turf itself and the pellets. The initial installation always costs a lot more

    I also think you can replace just the portions that get the wear like the batters box and base path areas.
