Robinson Stadium UCLA, CA
Jackie Robinson Stadium has been home
to the UCLA Bruins since 1981. In the off-season of 2007- 2008, UCLA
undertook a major renovation to Jackie Robinson Stadium. Funding from
the Steele foundation made this total baseball field make-over possible.
According to the UCLA Bruins web site, “the baseball program
was able to install a state-of-the-art, major-league playing surface.”
Part of this state-of-the-arts package was the Multi-Flow drainage
system. Long collection runs traverse the length of the field.
of the length of these runs, they start out as twelve-inch collectors
and step up to eighteen inch.
Multi-Flow lines were trenched in at 10 foot intervals! Multi-Flow
lines were joined to 12-inch PVC transport pipes at the edge of the
field using Multi-Flow Rigi-Taps.
J. Borg, Director of Facilities and Project Management for the UCLA
Athletics Department said, "When I design sports fields I design
them to be the best, and Multi-Flow is the best drainage system in
the field. That’s why we installed Multi-Flow during our field
replacement at UCLA's Jackie Robinson Stadium."
The Bruins are now ready for anything the PAC 10 or
El Nino can throw at them.
