The Baseball Field at Blackburn College received a newly sodded infield on Thursday, November 5. Blackburn players and coaches began the project a little bit after 8 a.m. and by 12:30 the infield was replaced as well as the foul areas in front of the 1st base dugout as well as the area behind home plate.
Shortly after the project was complete, mother nature cooperated with a nice steady rainfall that lasted into the evening.
"I'm confident this will give us the nicest natural infield playing surface in our league as one of the top infield surfaces in the state of Illinois," said Blackburn Coach Mike Neal.
