Loeffler Field Maintenance Begins

The first significant maintenance project in Loeffler Field’s 62-year history began today.

Pitchcare — a well-respected turf management company — has been contracted to do the work. It involves soil analysis, shockwave, overseeding, rotoknife thatch control and rolling, and overseeding. Westport Parks & Recreation Department will handle weed and crabgrass control.

Over many years, the soil became compacted. Uneven playing surfaces led to damp areas. This project will bring the field back to its heyday, as the premier grass facility in the state.

Funding comes from the Top of the Hill Team, boys and girls soccer program, and the Staples Diamond Club (baseball boosters).
