RESEARCH SETS NATURAL GRASS BENCHMARKS FOR BASEBALL TURF
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the similarities between FIFA benchmarks and the natural grass at a top performing baseball field.
Act Global, ProGrass and FIFA accredited Labosport performed on-site FIFA Quality testing of the New York Yankees spring training facility to benchmark a high-performing natural grass baseball stadium with synthetic turf.
Results confirm the synthetic turf manufactured by Act Global is comparable in performance, quality and safety to natural grass at a baseball stadium in pristine condition.
Act Global is the first company to obtain scientific data comparing natural grass for soccer, American football and baseball fields with FIFA and Synthetic Turf Council guidelines. We drew similar conclusions from a study on Kyle Field at Texas A&M,
a top natural grass field for American football. Our investment in these studies demonstrates our commitment to maintaining FIFA quality turf and bringing these standards to stadiums of all types.
