Profile Products Assists With Construction Of Olympic Game Fields

In August, when the XXVIII Olympic Games begin in Athens, Greece, baseball and softball teams from around the world will play on fields with an American infield advantage. Nearly 37 tons of Profile Products' TURFACE Pro League Red, a patented sports field conditioner, will be used in each field's construction. Pro League Red is a calcined clay conditioner that provides the most consistent particle size for a better, safer playing surface and a rich red color for an aesthetic appeal that befits an Olympic event.

Murray Cook, president of Brickman Landscape Company, who is overseeing the construction of the seven Olympic baseball and softball fields, selected TURFACE Pro League Red because of the consistent success he's experienced with it incorporated into Major League Baseball fields and many other fields around the world. Thirty-seven tons of TURFACE Pro League Red will be blended into infield mix to prevent compaction and improve moisture absorption.

"We were very pleased with how the field played and looks and how everything has come together," Cook said. "Aesthetically, it really looks sharp. TURFACE Pro League Red complimented the red clay used to construct the infield."

According to Jim Tanner, vice president of marketing, Profile Products LLC, the selection of TURFACE Pro League Red on such a high-profile complex signifies sports turf professionals' reliance on TURFACE for helping an infield achieve optimal playing conditions and aesthetics.
