Phillies tap CoverSports for covers, wall padding
The Philadelphia Phillies and Citizens Bank Park, home of the perennial National League Eastern Division Champions, have purchased a variety of CoverSports’ field covers and wall padding products for its re-sodded stadium. CoverSports custom-made a full Infield Tarp, 175’x175’ square of 6.3oz. white/white polyethylene, with custom twist, easier-to-grab handles, inserted grommets in 12’ intervals and webbing on all four sides for additional reinforcement. Six custom Rain Spot Covers in Maple Green 18oz. vinyl with 2’ grommet intervals were manufactured to protect the pitchers’mounds and home plates on the playing field and both bullpens.
In addition, CoverSports used an 18oz. Emerald Green Vinyl to make padding to cover the walls of the entire outleld including the foul line territories of right and left fields, and the bullpen areas. These pads, which will replace the stadium padding that was originally installed when the Park opened, are filled with 3” EnviroSafe IFD-100 foam backed with ¾” plywood. The heights of the pads range from 30” to 8’3”, and also feature seven distance markers printed on the padding in white numerals with red and blue trim.
