Between 2 Farthest Fields (mi.) # of Metro Area Rooms Map Location # of Fields Lighted Sport Destination Little League Baseball World Series Lamade Stadium, home of the Little League Baseball World Series, received a full resurfacing this off-season to ensure fields are in the best possible condition for the children who play at the ballpark each summer. "Each year, our fields receive natural wear and tear beneath the surface that may not be visible to those watching from the stands or at home, and this year, Lamade Stadium's field had an invasive species (annual bluegrass) invade much of the outfield grass which made it necessary for us to renovate the playing surface," said Rob Guthrie, Little League International Turf and Groundskeeper. "To ensure the fields are in the best possible condition each year, we decided it was necessary to com- pletely resurface the fields at each of our stadiums. Last year we had the oppor- tunity to resurface the field at Volunteer Stadium." The process started after the conclu- sion of the 2018 Little League Baseball World Series. In addition to adding sand and grading the surface, new sod and irrigation heads were installed.
