Dutchess Stadium is the home field of the Hudson Valley Renegades, an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. BL Companies has been retained to provide design services for the renovation of Dutchess Stadium field. Problematic issues include drainage, subsurface conditions including soil mix and an improper field slope. The infield will be raised to match the existing grade at the dugouts and stadium. A new sand-based soil mix and under drainage will increase infiltration to maximize playability and field use. New under drainage and irrigation will be installed and the turf will be reinforced for major event use and concert equipment. Special consideration was given to the development of a schedule that would allow for the completion of all work by opening day, with a ten-week construction and grow-in period.
