To All Teams that will Play at Pirtz Field in Billings, MT:
Pirtz Field is an incredibly important asset for Billings American Legion Baseball. We have 6 teams plus MSUB Baseball that use this facility for games and practices on a daily basis weather permitting. Billings American Legion Baseball has invested approximately $800,000 in Pirtz Field Improvements in the past 5 years once we have completed the current improvements. The improvements have been 100% funded by community minded people and businesses that care about this program. It is imperative that we take care of this asset the best we can so that we can enjoy this great ballpark for years to come at the level we have built in recent years.
The infield artificial turf was put down 4 years ago and has been a great addition to Pirtz Field. However, due to the fact that we have allowed metal spikes we are seeing significant wear and tear throughout the turfed areas. The bullpens, game mound, and home plate areas have been hit extremely hard due to the high impact of metal spikes. In order for the turf to last as long as we are expecting it to last (10-12 years), the board of Billings American Legion Baseball has decided to ban metal spikes for being used anywhere at Pirtz Field including the grass areas. Turf shoes or molded cleats will be allowed or any other form of shoe but no metal spikes.
We appreciate all of your support in adhering to this new rule. We understand that this is an inconvenience for everyone but it is very important to maintain this field in proper condition for everyone that gets the opportunity to play here.
