Michigan State baseball’s heated field has successful first year


EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State University has long benefited from having a strong turf management program. In 2014, the program helped the baseball field win the Turf Managers Association’s “Field of the Year.”

This past baseball off-season, the program helped Michigan State baseball install the first electric heated field in the United States.

WKAR's Brett Kast takes us to McLane Stadium during the early morning hours on game day to meet the people behind the scenes, and to see what makes Kobs field stand out among the rest.
