“$6.00 HAIRCUTS!” the sign outside the new barbershop announced.
This is a classic marketing story. Told so perfectly that I’ve wondered if it’s true. Until I saw a hair salon near my house touting that they fix cheap haircuts. I laughed as I thought the owner must have recently heard the same tale.
Then it hit me…our company could easily hang that same banner outside our office. Instead of fixing haircuts, we fix cheap infield mix.
Infield mix in Illinois has historically been two things…cheap and silty. Playing on, and maintaining, these ballfields can be difficult. Silty fields can get too hard and dusty during dry weather. After a rain they quickly become slippery.
Now, there is a manageable solution for these types of fields. Waupaca Sand & Solutions scientifically analyzes your fields and recommends the best amendment to improve your baseball field’s performance. We have found that most “bad” baseball and softball fields can be fixed without an expensive full-field replacement.
Call us today to learn how we can fix the cheap infield mix on your ballfield.

It was a beautiful night for baseball in Crestwood, Illinois. Taking in a minor-league ballgame is the perfect way to relax and rekindle your love for the game.
The right fielder tracks down a long fly ball. Our Red Tread Warning Track Stone kept him safe as he made the play. The fielder looked good making the play.
And the red stone looked amazing in the outfield too.
Moonrise over the stadium. Baseball under the lights on a summer evening. Enjoy a minor league game near you before summer is over.

How is baseball infield mix made? Why does it matter? What is Engineered Infield Mix?
There are three basic methods used to make infield mix:

Your infield is bad. It just doesn’t play the way it should. It’s too greasy when it’s wet, and it’s a dust cloud when it’s dry.
But you’re stuck with it, right?
Replacing the infield dirt is out of the question. You can’t afford the cost or the time to rebuild the field. And throwing down expensive drying agents is breaking your budget.
What else can you do?
Now, you can improve your infield mix with minimal cost and disruption by changing its sand, silt, and clay structure. Just call Waupaca Sand. We will:
- Visit your field to professionally take representative samples of your infield.
- Have your infield mix tested by an independent laboratory
- Then, we’ll use our proprietary analytical system to specify how to best amend your field.
Incorporate the specified sand, silt, and clay amendment with your existing mix, and regrade the field for an improved infield for less money.

It was a perfect night for football as the Manawa Wolves played the first home game on their new field.
In March, Faulks Bros. Construction, Waupaca Sand & Solutions’ parent company, broke ground for the school’s new natural grass football field and track. Over the summer, it was amazing to see the site transform as our crews performed earthwork and installed the new growing media. By the time September rolled around, the field was ready for the team’s home opener.
The long list of donors who made the project possible were honored at a halftime ceremony. A loss to the powerhouse Amherst High School team was the only negative of the evening for the proud Manawa community. However, we’re certain the Wolves will celebrate many wins on their great-looking new field.
