COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT


Would you like to participate in the CSP? MPSTMA members annually renovate a sports field in Minnesota typically in September or October. If you'd like to gain experience building a mound, batter's box and see all the aspects of producing a great playing field, or if you just want to help spruce up a local community's field, you should join the CSP team!  

Do you have a field that needs renovating?
Go to
www.mpstma.org/csp.htm to fill out an application today! Maybe it will be a 2018 project.

Impressive Sports Fields for Vikes
At New TCO Performance Center

On June 27, a MPSTMA group of 85 met in Eagan to tour the new sports fields at the TCO Performance Center - practice home of the Minnesota Vikings Football Club. Vikings' Sports Field Managers Grant Davisson and Dan Seidel hosted and addressed the group and talked about how each of the four outdoor sports fields differ. Each field compares to the variety of surfaces the Vikings will face on the road in the National Football League. Local football teams will have opportunities to play on these fields. The synthetic turf, pictured above, is wide enough and long enough for a regulation soccer field. The group had lunch near the indoor maintenance facility and the natural grass fields.
