KENT STATE UNIVERSITY BASEBALL & FIELD HOCKEY
Kent State University’s facilities at Schoonover Field (baseball stadium) and Murphy-Mellis Field (field hockey) both utilize synthetic turf play surfaces, but the types of turf best suited for each sport are very different. Baseball requires a turf similar to football and soccer, but with a shorter blade height and a non-marking rubber infill material. Field hockey requires a much shorter and denser turf, with no infill.
Behnke designed and generated construction documents for the turf, warning track, bull pens, and fencing system for the baseball stadium, as well as the turf, water cannons and fencing systems for the field hockey stadium.
Construction Cost: $2 Million
