Warning Track Surfacer

With a larger particle size, this surfacer gives players a clear visual and physical warning that they are nearing the fence. The 3/8” minus particle size also allows for the best drainage of the three warning track blends. This mix is preferred by teams who want to have a distinct ‘crunch’ underfoot as an indication that the fielder is nearing the wall. The Warning Track Surfacer comes in Mar-Co’s signature red colour, giving your ball field a professional look.

Running Track Surfacer

This mixture has a higher level of silt and sand than the other warning track materials, so it will set up more firmly. If you like a warning track that offers solid footing and a smooth feel — or have areas that are prone to washouts – this is the right product for you. This Running Track Surfacer comes in Mar-Co’s signature red colour, giving your ball field a professional look.

  • 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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
