Cincinnati begins synthetic turf renovation

CINCINNATI -- Cincinnati has begun a synthetic turf installation project for Marge Schott Stadium that is scheduled to be completed on Aug. 28. The project will remove the current playing surface and replace it with a state-of-the-art surface covering the entire field.

Cincinnati has selected local contractor The Motz Group for the installation. The Motz Group has been a provider of world-class athletic surfaces for nearly 40 years.

“The replacement of the playing surface at Marge Schott Stadium is another statement that our administration is making a sincere effort to improve the experience at UC for our student-athletes” head coach Ty Neal said. “The new playing surface will allow our guys to develop year-round in a first-class facility. [Athletic director] Mike Bohn is making baseball a priority here and every member of our program is very appreciative.

“We compete in one of the most competitive baseball conferences in the country and we owe it to the American Athletic Conference to present a facility that reflects our elite status. I personally cannot wait to lace them up. The Bearcats are coming.”

The new Marge Schott Stadium turf will feature The Motz Group’s TriplePlay HP System. This system, which incorporates a texturized thatch layer, ensures consistency and minimizes infill flyout to provide the most realistic ball bounce in the industry.

All areas of the field, including the warning track, home plate, pitcher’s mound and bullpens will be turf.

Marge Schott Stadium was constructed in 2004. This will be the first field renovation in the stadium’s 10-year history.
