The Elite Indoor Sports Facility was chosen as the Hellas Construction Field of the Month for April. Hellas provided a new playing surface from base work to turf.
“Hellas is the premier turf company in the country, and I would recommend them for all of your athletic facility needs,” said general manager Matt Baty. “I look forward to expanding our relationship over many years.”
The objective for the renovation was to provide baseball and softball players in the Wichita area with the premiere training facility in the region.
“We currently have a 20,000 square foot facility on the campus mainly used for hitting, pitching, classroom sessions and strength and conditioning,” Baty said. “Now we have over 48,000 square feet of facilities on one campus. Hellas helped create a playing surface that is safe and plays with true hops and speed of the game.”
Baty also said working with Hellas was an easy process, one that he was impressed with.
“Michelle (Kuhns) is the best,” Baty said. “I have had the privilege of knowing her since her South High coaching and AD days. She knows her product well, she knows what athletes and organizations need, and she is on it from beginning to well after the project is completed.”
