Frank Loria Field Artificial Turf Project

The City of Clarksburg and City of Clarksburg Board of Park Commissioners have agreed to fund the Frank Loria Field Artificial Turf Project for the youth of Clarksburg.


The original turf was installed in April of this year, but unfortunately after only five days of use a devastating flood on April 16 rendered the field unplayable.


The new field will be constructed and installed in a manner to prevent flood waters from damaging the field in the future.


Steps that will be taken include; installation of a concrete curb around the perimeter of the field to attach the turf, replacement of the existing fencing with 4” terminal posts and 3” line posts each concreted in place, the new fencing will support a windscreen on the inside and a geotextile fabric on the exterior.  This material will prevent debris from getting on the field and to help to divert the flood waters.


Additionally, repairs will be made to the drainage system and stone base before laser grading takes place to insure that the field will drain properly.


The synthetic turf to be installed will be baseball specific and have a higher concentration of infill, the sand and rubber in the turf, of at least seven pounds per square foot which will add stability to the turf.


Also, the Park Commission is in the process of rebuilding the pressbox, concession stand and restrooms which were damaged by a fire in March of this year.


Both the City of Clarksburg and City of Clarksburg Board of Park Commissioners intend to have the field ready for play at the start of baseball season next year.
