Another year of baseball is coming to an end. It was full of some great international events with the Opening Day in Japan to WBC qualifiers. Some new fields in Panama , Mexico Germany along with several other fun projects. This blog only captures the few things i have time to add during the year but as with anything there are a ton of things that go on behind the scenes to make these international events happen. A major THANK YOU to our brickman sportsturf team for helping to make this past year successful as well as our host of awesome vendors that provide products for us at many of these
Turning our sites to 2013 …. and let me say it looks to be just as exciting as 2012. We will have a hand in operations for the WBC first rounds in Taiwan , Japan and Puerto Rico. New parks going up in Amsterdam, Hermosillo and Taipei and some fun stuff I cant really comment about in a few other countries. In 2012 We sent guys to 8 different countries this an logged over half-a- million miles between the group. This year seems to have never stopped!
At this time of year it gives us all a chance to reflect on our lives and to be thankful for what we have. Family, friends our troops in Afghanistan and many others. Hoping everyone had a great 2012 and also a wonderful New year.
The new ballpark in Hermosillo, Sonora is coming around. To say its going to be close is typical in ballpark construction but the G.C. and architect are working very hard to make it happen. When the venue and field is completed, it will rank in the top class of baseball stadiums in south america. The Sea Spray Paspalum turfgrass looks pretty nice and is a local turf so they will be able to re-sod as needed. We will be starting the mounds an bullpens this week. With about 6 weeks before the 2013 Caribbean World Series we should be in pretty good shape with the field.
