In 2010, a baseball field opened in West Dallas, Texas, called the “Field of Dreams.” Founded by the nonprofit Mercy Street, it has served the community as a place for impoverished kids ages five to 14 to learn baseball and develop life skills from volunteer coaches and staff.
Now, Mercy Street had Turf Solutions Group (TSG) design and build two softball fields, a soccer field, two youth soccer fields and a multi-purpose field to accompany the already existing baseball field.
To accomplish this, TSG used its design service to give Mercy Street a realistic look at its new complex. The design service started with a master plan of improvements. It was then transformed into a 3-D image. The new 3-D renderings help convey what the facility will look like before it’s actually built, which helps Mercy Street explain the expansion to the donors of its nonprofit organization.
Mercy Street was founded to assist the poor of West Dallas. Along with student mentor programs, Mercy Street is passionate about teaching kids values through sports. Its goal is “to provide kids with positive influences and role model through our coaches and a healthy, safe environment to compete in individual and team sports.” At little cost, parents can sign kids up to join teams and learn the fundamentals of baseball.
