The University of Evansville, Evansville, Ind., baseball team, the Aces, will be putting its feet on a new surface as its stadium undergoes a major renovation this year, including a new AstroTurf synthetic turf field. The facility will be getting more than a greener look as the face-lift will include padded walls throughout the stadium, new fence lines down the first and third base lines, dugout and bullpen renovations, a new LED scoreboard, as well as the AstroTurf premium playing surface. The updated venue will be named German American Bank Field at Charles H. Braun Stadium.

The AstroTurf Diamond Series includes multiple artificial turf components that have been specifically engineered to emulate the look, feel, and performance of both the grass and clay portions of a baseball field. Diamond Series turf systems from AstroTurf are well-known for delivering the ultimate in playability, durability, and ballpark aesthetics.

This project not only benefits the Aces baseball program, it will also have impacts on the entire athletic department and community. The new synthetic AstroTurf field will allow the soccer and softball teams to train on it during the winter months and attract baseball camps and tournaments in the summer.

The University of Evansville will join other Division 1 Baseball programs such as Vanderbilt, Michigan, Kentucky, Duke, West Virginia, Ohio State, and many more as AstroTurf Diamond Series customers. Construction will take two to three months and the field will be ready well before the Aces take the field in February 2020.

For athletes and sport enthusiasts, AstroTurf has redefined the way the game is played. The brand offers advanced, state-of-the-art, multi-sport, and specialized synthetic turf systems with proprietary engineered technologies. A growing number of high schools, colleges, professional sports teams, and municipalities continue to select AstroTurf-branded products for their quality, technical superiority, and safety.
