"The ProGrass played true to form and was great in all areas, baserunning, ground balls. After working out the early season hops and getting used to the field, it played great. We loved it!"
"The turf has been great. Our guys like playing on it and we haven’t had any issues. It’s also nice that we get to wear spikes and don’t have to wear turfs on the surface. It plays very similar to natural grass and we’ve had no problems. I think it’s an excellent investment and I’m very happy that Lindenwood-Belleville has signed a contract to play at GCS for a number of years."

"The product that ProGrass has installed here at GCS Ballpark is above and beyond anything I could have imagined. While the rest of the St. Louis area fields are thawing during the day and freezing back up at night, we are ready for play each day. We generally do not start our spring schedule until early March, if we are lucky and with the new ProGrass field, we have hosted 20 plus games/practices since the end of January."
"From a groundkeepers point of view, the maintenance on our ProGrass field is very minimal. I used to spend six hours a day mowing, edging, dragging and watering the field before a game. With this product, I barely spend an hour grooming the fibers. It is a blessing to a team with a very busy schedule and I recommend it any team from High School to a Professional level!"
