March 13, 2024

Wichita State University opens its 2024 baseball and softball seasons with Hellas Construction as the official turf of the Shockers. Hellas installed Major Play turf at Wilkins Softball Stadium in 2023 and will soon install turf as part of phase one at the team’s indoor practice facility.

“Hellas has provided turf for our game field, hitting facility and the new indoor facility,” said Wichita State Head Softball Coach Kristi Bredbenner. “Between the customer service and quality of product, we couldn’t be happier.”

In 2020, Hellas installed Major Play turf at Tyler Field at Eck Baseball Stadium. The Shockers have enjoyed the playability of the Major Play Turf System specifically designed for baseball. Wichita State’s baseball field also incorporates Helix Technology, enhancing the structure and strength of each turf fiber. The monofilament fibers allow them to bounce back after use.

According to the company, Helix Technology improves the turf’s lifespan and holds infill and eliminates fly-out. The Major Play turf installed at Wichita State softball and baseball offers high utilization, functionality and performance throughout all seasons.

“One of the things we strive for in everything we do at Wichita State is providing a first-class experience for our student-athletes and the turf provided by Hellas is a major part of that,” Brian Green, Wichita State head baseball coach, said. “The surface drains exceptionally well, handles high amounts of traffic and gives us the look of a truly top-notch college baseball facility.”

Hellas previously installed Matrix Helix synthetic turf at all seven high school football fields in Wichita Public Schools in 2009 and again in 2021.
