PARTNERING WITH WILLIAM JEWELL COLLEGE ATHLETICS
Back in 2013, we were contacted by the athletic department at William Jewell to help consult on some infield reconditioning services for the mens baseball field. If you've been to their ball field before, you'll note that it didn't need a bunch of work. After a few conversations as to the solutions we could help provide our work started.
In this ball fields particular case, the focus was solely on the infield area. The project consisted of properly laser grading the infield using tools and machinery. Once our grade was at the perfect pitch, we then brought in some dirt and clay that we helped mix and lay the infield foundation with. The completed project, after we were able to level and work the dirt and clay mix properly, was a huge success and something the baseball team still plays on today.
