Simply stated, this was a classic bait and switch.  The contractor stated, "We can bring you a professional quality mix at $20 per ton."  What was installed was a course white limestone over a 1/2 inch of expanded shale.  After one year and no play, the course material is surfacing, so the facility has a new infield with "rock" present.

Bottom line, be careful with what you purchase.
