Believe it or not, dugout flooring is one of the more important aspects to consider when planning or updating a baseball field! It really sets the tone and creates the first impression of the overall field or diamond.

It is also the area where players, coaches, and support staff and volunteers spend a great deal of time, so having a quality in place will keep them clean and comfortable and help keep teams coming back to your field or complex.
