WESTERN HIGH SCHOOL, FIELD RENOVATION - LAS VEGAS, NEVADA
Ewing Irrigation completed an infield renovation project for Western High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Company consultants worked closely with the Western High School head baseball coach to incorporate AquaSmart Field Magic into the existing field fines. The team blended AquaSmart Field Magic with field fines and then worked the product down into the existing field skin using a nail drag and drop spreader. A Bobcat was used to further blend the new fines and were then spread on the infield which raised the playing surface two to three inches. “The playing conditions are extremely better a far as playability goes,” reported Coach Krier. “And the results thus far are outstanding.”
