TALLAHASSEE, Florida - RS3 Turf, a division of Ryan Sanders Baseball, is proud to announce a short-term agreement with Florida State University to provide turf management at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium, home of the Seminoles baseball team, as well as JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex. The 45-day agreement includes an option to extend the partnership into the future.
"RS3 Turf has quickly proven our ability to branch outside the state of Texas to provide site management," RS3 Turf Senior Vice President Garrett Reddehase said. "We are incredibly excited to partner with a university that has the track record of success as Florida State. We strive to provide the best playing surface for the baseball and softball student athletes at FSU and look forward to delivering upon our promise."
The Florida State baseball program has been one of the most successful history, advancing to the NCAA Tournament 56 times with 22 appearances in the College World Series. The Seminoles are led by head coach Mike Martin, the winningest coach in the history of collegiate baseball. Equally as successful, the university's softball program won the 2018 National Championship after sweeping the final series at the Women's College World Series. The program has appeared in the NCAA regionals every year since 2000 and has never had a losing season.
