MLB and Scotts announce partnership to renovate U.S. baseball fields

March 31, 2016  - By

Over the next three years ballparks around the country will receive renovations thanks to Major League Baseball and The Scotts Co.

MLB announced Tuesday, according to the Associated Press, that it will work with The Scotts Co. to find fields that require renovations. Upgrades to these fields will include the planting of new turf, replacing fences and the addition of scoreboards and dugouts.

Individual MLB teams also will take part in choosing which local fields receive makeovers.

This announcement is a part of the Play Ball initiative introduced by Commissioner Rob Manfred and USA Baseball last year, designed to attract more young people to baseball and softball while giving them additional opportunities to play.
