All work on the new training center was completed in less than 2-months time and is by far state-of-the-art in terms of materials used & facility versatility. The new facility spans over 10,500’ and 23’ high. The Jack & Rhodine Gifford Hitting Facility is a one of a kind practice and training center that is like no other. Utilizing a unique retractable netting systems by West Coast Netting, coupled with Ameriturf’s exclusive synthetic grass fiber system, has put UCLA’s training & batting facility leagues above anything available in the U.S.
As UCLA marches down the road for an NCAA title, there’s no doubt this new facility is a great weapon in their training arsenal. Ameriturf’s unique fiber and infill system is perfect for creating that infield bounce that you don’t get from traditional synthetic grass & rubber systems.
Typical rubber and rubber-sand combinations fields tend to “kill” the ball bounce as it hits the synthetic turf thus slowing a players ability to predict ball trajectory. With the Ameriturf infill and fiber system the baseball rebounds and has a true “Reaction” that is identical to a natural baseball field in perfect condition… not to fast & not to slow.
Ameriturf’s synthetic grass system is designed like no other with a unique blend of fibers that mimic natural grass by standing straight up & rebound perfectly. With high ounces of fiber per sq yard, and thickest fibers available, Ameriturf creates the winning combination of the Reaction system, and is the highest performance sport specific product available in North America.
Most athletic fields in North America have stuck with “old”
technology that was developed over 20 years ago.UCLA-synthetic-turf
Every aspect of technology in sports has changed, but ironically the “standard” synthetic grass sports field has been left behind.
Today Ameriturf offers the most advanced field system available that is by far pure reactive sports performance, without all the rubber flying around and high heat temperatures.
