The turf crew made considerable progress Tuesday, laying turf on the west side of the field slightly past the goal line.

Due to the extreme heat hitting Crawfordsville, the crew is working twelve hour shifts from 3:00 a.m to 3:00 p.m.  These lights were brought over from the practice football fields to help the crew start before the sun.

The segments are attached with this small sewing machine.  The process takes at least 8 men to hold the two pieces of turf together.

The east side of the field will likely get covered tomorrow.

Most of the irrigation piping for the field has been put in.  This post marks pipes that run below the future infield.
