MiLB Stadium Gets Equipment Makeover for Little League Classic

For the second year, Promats Athletics was chosen to transform a baseball park into a temporary MLB stadium for the organization’s special regular-season game that celebrates family, community, and of course, baseball.

Braves Select Promats for Padding at New Sun Trust Park

To protect players from injury at its sparkling new Sun Trust Park, the Atlanta Braves selected Promats Athletics to supply all protective padding for their new 41,000-plus seat stadium. The agreement marked the continuation of a long relationship between the Braves and Promats, which had padded the Braves’ previous home, Turner Field.

Salisbury’s very own Promats Athletics may be in the business of stadium field wall padding year-round, but it’s only once a year they get to show off their product at one of the nation’s most popular sporting events.

Over the 17 years that has presented its Ballpark of the Year Award, the winners have always been new stadiums meant to be utilized for decades. Not this year.  The 2016 Ballpark of the Year is Fort Bragg Field, the facility built by Major League Baseball to host one game. But, oh, what a special game it was! The honor is given annually to the new or remodeled pro baseball stadium with the best combination of site selection, exterior appearance, architectural design, and fan amenities. 

Promats to Outfit Fort Bragg Stadium

Promats Athletics of Salisbury, NC has been selected as the official supplier of athletic equipment at the upcoming Fort Bragg Game in Fayetteville, NC. The event, which is the first Major League Baseball game hosted on an active military base, is scheduled for Sunday, July 3 and will feature the Atlanta Braves vs. the Miami Marlins.

Don’t Be Misled: A Follow Up with 3rd Party Test Results

In April 2016, a competitor posted a video of in-house testing of Ultra Cross Braided Dyneema® netting, claiming that traditional #18 knotted netting was far superior. The test was conducted using a 30”x30” section strung tightly on a fixed metal framework. In this non-realistic configuration, the Ultra Cross failed, but we knew better.

Busch Stadium

What does the commercial fishing industry have to do with Major League Baseball’s recommendations to improve ballpark safety for its fans in 2016? For Promats Athletics, which played a prominent role installing tension backstop netting systems for major league teams this off-season, the answer is Ultra Cross Braided Dyneema® netting.

Competition on the playing field is dictated by rules of the game, in business the rules are less clear, at least for some. Recently, we had a competitor post results of a self-claimed "rigorous" test, where they compared our industry preferred Ultra Cross braided, knotless Dyneema® netting to the traditional #18 twisted and knotted product offered by many in the industry. Their intent was to “…shed some light on the mystery of Ultra Cross netting…”.

Red Sox believe fans will adapt to Fenway’s extended netting

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. — Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said Saturday that no season ticket-holders have given up their seats or asked to be moved to a different section because of the expanded protective screens soon to be installed at Fenway Park.

The San Diego Padres on Dec. 7 announced details surrounding upgrades at Petco Park for 2016. The centerpiece of the updates is a new two-level social space in right-center field inspired by San Diego’s beach lifestyle.  Locally based Sun Diego Boardshops has expanded its existing relationship with the Padres to become the presenting partner of the space, which will be constructed in the location currently occupied by The Beachers seating area and The Beach play area.
