Yesterday, it was announced that Butler University will join the A-10 effective for the 2012-13 sports year. To learn more about the move, click HERE, for an article from the Indianapolis Star and HERE for an article from Butler.
I stopped by Butler to check on the softball and baseball fields yesterday. I thought I would share a few photos.
First, the softball field has seen great improvements over the last 12-18 months. New bleachers, backstop net, bullpens, cages, wall padding, etc have all been installed. The playing surface is a rye/blue blend that is maintained at 1 1/4 inch cutting height. The infield was amended with FieldSaver50 and conditioned with Diamond Pro Professional Calcined Clay. Here are a few photos:
Next, I stopped by the baseball field. An indoor hitting facility, new dugouts, backstop wall and net are all new to the baseball complex in the last 18 months. The playing surface is a rye/blue blend. This field was also amended with FieldSaver50 and conditioned with Diamond Pro Professional Calcined Clay. Here are a few photos:
Both facilities have improved greatly in the last 18 months, I would expect more improvements as the Bulldogs move to the A-10.
