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.

  • "The return on investment has been significant. The Mar-Co mix may have seemed expensive up front, but I’ve had more teams asking to rent the diamonds than ever before, and we’re hosting a lot more tournaments now."

  • Mar-Co Clay testimonial Jim Puhalla

    "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."

  • "Maintenance of the fields is so much easier and faster then it ever was before we installed the MarCo Clay. If time, looks, and play are important to you then I would recommend installing the MarCo Clay mix on your field."

    "The MarCo Clay has increased the playability of our fields from the stand point that we can get fields ready for play sooner after a rain storm. We have been asked to host the Williamsport Little League District tournaments in our area. We have had positive feed back from many of the teams that have played on our new MarCo Clay fields. Maintenance of the fields is so much easier and faster then it ever was before we installed the MarCo Clay. If time, looks, and play are important to you then I would recommend installing the MarCo Clay mix on your field."

  • "Mar-Co improved drainage to the infield, reduced labour costs for the municipality, and decreased the number of injuries during play with the softer clay. Not only that, but now it looks like the kids are playing on a big-league field, which brings smiles to their faces."

    "Mar-Co improved drainage to the infield, reduced labour costs for the municipality, and decreased the number of injuries during play with the softer clay. It’s great to see the smiles on the kids’ faces as they walk onto the field. It looks like they’re playing on a big-league field, and maybe they will someday, thanks to Mar-Co Clay."
