Erie Ball Mix

Now with a smaller aggregate size, Erie Ball Mix is changing expectations about what an affordable baseball infield mix can deliver. Like Washington Ball Mix, it offers durability, minimal maintenance, and good moisture control, but has a slightly softer, smoother texture because of its higher silt and clay content.

  • "Within two weeks of contacting Mar-Co to seek advice about a neglected ball field, they’d delivered clay and had a crew on the job. They did an amazing job and – to our absolute amazement – this little town has a beautiful and playable field once again."

    "In my 35 years experience in testing and installing baseball and softball field skinned area soil, I recently found the best mixture ever – Mar-Co Clay Ball Diamond Products."

    "In my 35 years experience in testing and installing baseball and softball field skinned area soil, I recently found the best mixture ever – Mar-Co Clay Ball Diamond Products. It’s the best in evaporation rate, playability, ease of maintenance, and stability (resists rutting and moving into the grass edge). And the number overall quality is it doesn’t get muddy when wet. It’s amazing. All my customers love it."

  • "Adding Mar-Co’s #15 Standard mix to our infield and the Clay Track Surfacer to our warning track has greatly enhanced the appearance of our ballpark and made prep time easier. In the spring, we’re playing when most other games are rained out."
