Baseball Field Drainage
Hydraway Drainage Systems extend the playable life of your field, keep players safe, and help ensure the crowd will return for the next game.
Despite the fact that baseball fields are not standard rectangles like other sports fields and have unique features like the dirt diamond and pitcher’s mound, Hydraway Drainage Systems help maintain baseball fields better and for longer than traditional perforated drain pipe systems.
Specifically, our Hydraway 2000 flat drain solution is simple to install and offers better performance than traditional systems. Hydraway offers a higher water inflow rate while virtually eliminating silt and debris clogging that often plagues other drainage solutions. Our system uses a needle-punctured fabric that is thermally bonded to a molded polyethylene core. Why does all this matter to you? Because Hydraway resists clogging, it can keep your field dry for far longer than a traditional drainage system. This means you won’t have to take up any more expensive projects that dig up your field.
Digging up even part of your field is expensive for more reasons than you might initially consider. Of course, there’s the cost of the project itself: digging trenches to get to your existing drainage pipes, replacing sections where necessary, refilling trenches, and replanting grass. Then you have the cost of missed games. Sure, this can be mitigated by conducting repairs in the off-season, but what if one day you show up and find flooding on your field? There are some things that just can’t wait, and canceling games or losing attendance is a virtual certainty. Not only will this drive down ticket sales, but all of the supplemental income that comes from crowds like merchandise and concessions will be lost as well.
If baseball fans aren’t showing up to watch games, you’re going to have a problem. While you can’t control for each and every factor that could impact attendance, you can make the grounds more hospitable for both players and fans. Why should rain the day before affect crowd size today?
Hydraway keeps fields dry. Our system is superior to any other drainage solution on the market today. Some of our benefits include:
If you aren’t doing everything in your power to keep players safe and your field well maintained, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if crowds begin to dwindle at games and other events.
