EP Minerals launches new Game Changer baseball infield conditioner
EP Minerals, LLC, announced the launch of Game Changer, a revolutionary new clay conditioner designed specifically for baseball infields. Game Changer features patent pending KT3 surface technology, formulated to keep baseball infields moist, not muddy, while controlling dust and reducing water usage.
“You’ve never seen anything like this,” said Jeff Kitchens, vice president of performance aggregates for EP Minerals. “This product is an incredible leap forward to manage baseball infields and solve problems for today’s groundskeepers. It controls dust, keeps the fields moist, and keeps playing conditions consistent for the whole game,” said Kitchens.
EP Minerals’ engineers and chemists worked for months to perfect the KT3 Technology soil moisture management capabilities in Game Changer. When combined with the infusion of a proprietary blend of non-ionic surface treatment, Game Changer uses the absorptive properties of calcined clay as a conditioner to allow more water penetration. “We then tested Game Changer at major league, minor league, college, and high school fields around the US. The result was a product that provides increased moisture retention even in extreme heat, lower water applications, and great dust control,” said Kitchens. “That means reduced water costs and less maintenance, all with better playing conditions. You can’t beat that,” added Kitchens. EP Minerals has developed four versions of Game Changer for different infield uses: Game Changer with KT3 Technology, Game Changer Regular Conditioner, Game Changer Mound Clay, and Game Changer Drying Agent.
EP Minerals will be introducing Game Changer at the Sports Turf Management Association (STMA) show in San Antonio, Texas, January 21-24, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Game Changer will be featured in the Southern Athletic Fields booth (#331) and Gail Materials booth (#480) To learn more about Game Changer, contact EP Minerals at 1-800-366-7607.
