Tulane baseball starts 2024 season with Hellas Major Play

The Green Wave of Tulane University is starting the 2024 baseball season on a new Major Play turf field installed by Hellas at Greer Field at Turchin Stadium.

The Thermoblend infill Hellas installed at Tulane’s baseball facility uses natural materials, including cellulose and olive particles for a firmer, faster surface. In addition, the use of natural materials allows Thermoblend to store and release moisture, creating a cooling effect that keeps on-field temperatures cooler.

Also included in this project was an overhaul of the Theresa Sofio Hitting Facility, which includes Hellas’ Matrix Helix turf throughout the facility, pitching mounds, and batter’s boxes.

“Tulane is always competitive,” said Tony Heath, regional business development manager for Hellas. “In 2023, the school decided to further invest in their teams by upgrading Benson Field at Yulman Stadium and Greer Field at Turchin Stadium. We are proud to have been selected to be a part of the success of these great teams.”
