Tiger Stadium Gets a New Look

Just two days after the Class of 2011 concluded Graduation ceremonies at Tiger Stadium, crews began an ambitious 120

day project to install state of the art sports turf! Not only did the existing natural turf need to be removed, but soil needed to be excavated to achieve proper compaction, and a drainage sys- tem, electrical and communication lines installed as well as new track event sur- faces and running lanes resurfaced and marked. Additionally a brand new scoreboard needed to be installed with the capability to tie in wirelessly for displaying timing information for track events in real time, as well as multiple finish times in high pro- file events like the 100 meters and relay events for multiple lanes or teams! In conjunction with the stadium work, another ambitious project was piggy backed for simultaneous completion which was a new JV girls softball dia- mond with a 25 foot high back stop and new concrete dugouts. The coordination between contractors, district personnel, and site supervisors was flawless. In fact it went so smoothly that rumors were rampant that the two games scheduled to be played on a tainted field south of town would not have to take place! In the end, the newly refurbished Tiger Stadium was opened for

Varsity practice on Friday, September 28th

and the Home

opener vs Citrus Hill Oct 5th. A formal dedication ceremony was held just prior to kick-off with Dr Shari Fox, Superinten-

dant at the microphone, recognizing many whose hard work and effort went into this project. Here are some fun facts. There are al- most 16 miles of 1 inch perforated drain line under the surface of the field. 240,000 lbs of rubber pellets are blended with 120,000 lbs of sand; that would require two five gallon buckets dumped by each of the 9000+ students enrolled in SJUSD! 24 rolls of turf 15' wide and 160 feet long make up the gridiron, and four more rolls 12 feet wide by 12' wide cover the sidelines. That’s 1.65 acres of rug. Or enough to carpet 240 average living rooms. The Tiger Paw at mid field is 60 feet in diameter, and can be seen by the naked eye from the peak of North Mountain.
