Hammons Field

Named “Ballpark of the Year” in 2005 by baseballparks.com, Hammons Field in Springfield, Missouri, is home to the Springfield Cardinals, the Double-A Texas League affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals as well as the baseball club of the Missouri State University Bears. The $32-million, 7500-plus seat stadium features one of the largest electronic scoreboards and JumboTrons in the country, and boasts one of the Minor League’s highest fan attendance rates since the team debuted in Springfield.

When plans were underway for the ballpark construction, the architects knew that the coating systems selected for this project demanded excellent long-term protection properties against corrosion and exposure as well as superior color and gloss retention characteristics. Having witnessed the performance of Tnemec coatings for a variety of past projects, Pellham Phillips knew that the coating systems would deliver a “win” and specified Tnemec for the job.

Following a preparation in accordance with SSPC-SP6/NACE No. 3 Commercial Blast Cleaning, the structural steel was primed with Series 27 F.C. Typoxy, a versatile, low-temperature polyamide epoxy providing fast curing and rapid handling capabilities.

Series 73 Endura-Shield, a semi-gloss polyurethane highly resistant to abrasion, wet conditions, corrosive fumes, chemical contact and exterior weathering, was specified as the coating system topcoat.

“Hammons Field was a nice project for us,” said Tnemec coating consultant Darrell Buerky. “We had the challenges of color matching the Series 73 to the standing seam roof and the deadlines for opening day, but the field turned out beautifully and continues to receive national accolades.”
