Boyd baseball players will get a much improved ballfield next season.

During Monday night’s regular meeting, the Boyd school board approved $37,037 of much-needed work for the infield.

Boyd Athletic Director Brandon Hopkins said the infield is currently in dire shape with little grass or good soil.

The work will be done by Master Turf Products and Service and is slated to start this month. The improvements include 100 to 125 tons of new dirt and rebuilding home plate and the pitching mound. The entire infield will be laser graded, and the grass will be resodded from dugout to dugout.

Boyd baseball players will be playing on Bermuda Tiff 419 next spring. BHS’ outfield also needs work, but Hopkins said that will have to be done at a later time.

The board also renewed several contract agreements as well as the district’s various insurance policies.
