Wade Stadium to get AstroTurf GameDay Grass

AstroTurf is used at Bill Davis Stadium at Ohio State. Ohio State Athletics.

AstroTurf GameDay Grass is the playing surface at Bill Davis Stadium at Ohio State. Ohio State Athletics.

The Duluth City Council recently approved a $554,98 contract to AstroTurf, LLC for the purchase and installation of AstroTurf GameDay Grass at Wade Stadium in West Duluth. The entire field will be turf, including the outfield and infield, infield basepaths and sliding areas, batter’s boxes and warning tracks. It’s the same turf currently being used at Ohio State’s Bill Davis Stadium and Tropicana Field, home of the Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays.

New Musco lighting will also be installed at Wade Stadium, as part of a $4.6 million renovation project scheduled to begin in late August.
