Hampshire baseball field wins award

Hampshire has taken great pride in its baseball field since the new high school opened six years ago and others have taken notice.

Whip-Purs coach John Sarna will accept the Athletics Field Maintenance Award at a convention in Dallas in January from the American Baseball Coaches Association and Turface. The award is given to one high school baseball program in the U.S. and to one college each year.

The 2013 Field Maintenance Awards were selected by a panel of industry professionals and groundskeepers, both from Major League Baseball and the National Football League.

Hampshire’s grounds crew is Brad Vosburgh, Jay Rasmussen and Chris Pulley. The field is used from March through October for high school games, summer high school leagues and camps and has hosted IHSA regional tournaments.

The Chicago Scouts Association Silver and Black Series also holds events on Hampshire’s field.
