Five Star Ag and Turf upgrades softball field

ABACO - Christopher Pinder, CEO of Five Star Ag & Turf Ltd., stood watching the work being carried out on April 15 at the Murphy Town Ball Field by two of his employees. With the grass being fertilized in the outfield, most of the more strenuous work was done to the infield area.
Using a tractor with a rock crusher alongside another tractor outfitted with a blecavator, the rock crusher rotavated and buried the rock keeping the soil on top. Blecavators are customarily used for ground preparation challenges. In the final stage, the rock crusher cultivated and pulverized the soil into a fine texture, burying rock and debris while leveling and raking in one pass. The following day, the finish was rolled, leaving a firm surface, and the bases were put back in place.
“It’s a $5,000 cost to do a job like this, and it’s a donation from Five Star Ag and Turf,” Pinder revealed.
Ishmael Morley of the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture was pleased with the work, and thanked corporate citizens like Mr. Pinder and Mr. Ben for their generous donation to the baseball and softball upcoming season.
