Ballpark turf facelift due

A section of the turf in the Hillsboro Ballpark will be replaced at no cost to the city after the end of the Hops’ 2013 season.

Hillsboro officials said there is no installation or safety problem; rather, the section in left field will be replaced because the color varies slightly from the rest of the turf.

The company that installed the playing field, Hellas Construction — based in Austin, Texas — is paying the full cost of the alterations.

Work is set to begin sometime next month and will take about four weeks. The old turf will be reused on other projects.

Hellas officials added that the company will reimburse the city for any lost revenue during the turf replacement project.
