Indiana State University Athletics

I spent a portion of my Tuesday morning in Terre Haute, IN.  I made site visits to three facilities of the Indiana State Athletics Department.  Here is a review of my visit:


The infield is FieldTurf while the outfield consists on bluegrass sod that was installed in December of 2011.


The infield was amended with Dura Edge Pro in 2010.  The outfield is a blend of cool season grasses.


My final stop was at the football/soccer complex.  There is a bermuda grass practice as well as a FieldTurf surface at the complex.

Lastly, I had a brief tour of the new $2.5 million locker room complex for the football and soccer programs.  Here are a couple of photos:

Needless to say, ISU has invested in their athletics in the last 5 years.  There has also been success on the field.

Thanks to Dan O'Brien and his crew for the visit.  Click HERE to learn more about Indiana State Athletics.

  1. Was homeplate at baseball synthetic as well?

    1. Yes the homeplate is synthetic. Originally, it was a waffle bottom plate, but that was changed last year.
