BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (Sept. 23, 2015— Hammons Field, home of the Springfield Cardinals, Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, was named the 2015 Field of the Year by the Texas League. Brock Phipps, the Cardinals’ head groundskeeper, was named as the 2015 Turf Manager of the Year.  
The honor is the fifth consecutive win for Hammons Field, located in Springfield, Missouri, and its seventh win in the last eleven years. The Springfield Cardinals and Hammons Field are also three-time winners of the Double-A Field of the Year (2008, 2013 and 2014), and the 2015 winner will be announced in the offseason. 
Phipps was proud of his crew’s dedication to maintaining Hammons Field’s elite playing surfaces and acknowledged Turface Athletics’ products as part of its success.
“I have enjoyed great success using Turface Pro League Champion Brown on Hammons Field. It provides a deep, rich brown color that enhances the visibility of the ball and performs at a high level,” said Phipps. “Our infield maintenance program, along with Turface, has provided us an award-winning field year after year.” 
“We’d like to congratulate Brock and his crew on the work they put into maintaining Hammons Field at such a high level,” said Jeff Langner, brand manager for Turface Athletics. “Our goal at Turface is to make it possible for athletes at all levels to play on safe, playable fields. We’re honored that our products have been chosen at such a premier facility as Hammons Field.”
