Artificial Turf coming to OSU’s Bill Davis Stadium

Ohio State baseball coach Greg Beals had been thinking for awhile about having Bill Davis Stadium’s surface changing from natural grass to artificial turf.

There are several colleges who have the the GameDay Grass surface that Beals desired, Duke, Wake Forest, Wichita State and pro teams, Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.

Illinois, Texas and the Cincinnati Bearcats also play baseball games on artificial turf.

So, Ohio State will be joining in that group in the fall.

AstroTurf GameDay Grass will be installed in time for the beginning of fall practice. The turf will cover every part of the field except the pitcher’s mound, warning track, batter’s box and the base areas.

Former Ohio State baseball star Nick Swisher, a two-time all-Big Ten performer and current New York Yankees outfielder, donated a genorous amount of money to get the project started.
