[ARCHIVED] Turf Is Coming to FBSC

Turf at FBSC

At its meeting on Aug. 12, the Liberty City Council approved a contract with AstroTurf Corporation to convert the Fountain Bluff Sports Complex’s baseball and softball fields to synthetic turf. 

When completed, Fountain Bluff will be the first public baseball/softball turf facility in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The complex already is a popular venue for local, regional and even national baseball and softball tournaments, hosting events every weekend during the tournament season.  With turf fields is expected to bring even more tournaments and teams to Liberty.

The nearly $4 million project, which will begin in September, involves turfing the infields and outfields of Fields 1-5 and the infields on Fields 6-9, which includes a high school regulation sized fields. The project will be funded through a special obligation bond, which will be paid through tournament fees, user fees and partnerships.   

Coming off a year that required rescheduling more than 50 league games and cancellation of several tournaments due to rain or snow, having synthetic turf playing surfaces will appeal to teams and tournament and league organizers alike.
