Sports Turf One is proud to announce that we recently completed construction on a series of baseball and softball fields for Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBAU), located in the Rinker Athletic Campus. With new turf, netting, and more, the SailFish are ready to own their division for years to come.
PBAU is now home to one of the top Division II softball fields in America. Their softball team and students are proud to call Simpson Field home. Measuring 200ft lines to the right and left corner fields, and 220ft to straightaway center field, the Lady SailFish are sure to win lots of games on this field! The field also offers a 10-inning LED scoreboard, stands to seat 300 fans, and a world-class playing surface.
A new baseball field was also a part of this college experience-altering construction. That’s right, both the men and the women got new fields at PBAU. Named the J.M. “Jake” Rubin Park, this field has 330ft left and right lines to the corner fields and 400ft to straightaway center field. This gorgeous monster is a showpiece for PBAU students, fans and athletes that will host hundreds of teams in the years to come. Like Simpson field, Rubin park also has a 10-inning LED scoreboard. However, it also has a unique widescreen to showcase the PBAU SailFish logo big and proud, and stands to sit 500 fans!
Mirroring Simpson Field is a practice field used by both the baseball and softball teams, as well as for tournaments. Together, these 3 fields make a complex that will help these college athletes grow into the professions they strive to be.
In the center of the 3 fields, there is a brand new concession stand where fans, students and parents alike, can purchase food and drinks as they desire.
After years of traveling to shared stadiums across Palm Beach County, the students who have worked so hard to get to where they are, will now truly be playing their games at “home”. Additionally, with all of the new state-of-the-art features, this new baseball and softball complex is sure to be a top candidate in hosting countless tournaments.
If you are as excited about seeing these new fields as we are, we highly recommend you attend one of their home games. Here is their upcoming schedule: http://pbasailfish.com/
