Field Resurfacing Completed Ahead of 2017 Season

Blue Crabs announce project in anticipation of 10th Anniversary

(Waldorf, Md.) – The Blue Crabs announced the completion of a playing surface makeover at Regency Furniture Stadium. The project is part of the buildup in anticipation of the 10th anniversary season. This is the first time the field has undergone such makeover in the Blue Crabs nine years as a part of the community.

The ten-day makeover was completed on Thursday, February 23rd by DeLea Sod Farms of Long Island, NY. The revamped playing surface will benefit players, improve drainage, and give it a fresh look for the fans. The company accomplished the same project in Long Island at Bethpage Ballpark in December 2016.

The field has been refurbished with fresh Kentucky Blue Grass. “This project was important to us going into our 10th season in Southern Maryland,” said Courtney Knichel, Blue Crabs General Manager. “We are excited to see the fresh green grass at Fan Fest and Opening Night.”

A full album of photos and progress reports can be viewed anytime on the Blue Crabs Facebook page.

The Blue Crabs open up the 2017 season on April 20th in Waldorf, MD versus the Long Island Ducks. For information regarding tickets and other team news, visit or call 301-638-9788.
