So what's it going to be tonight? The Cubs & Dodgers showdown or the presidential debate? It's all about playoff baseball at my house, just to keep the peace.  Did you know that the matchup between John Lackey and Julio Urías is one of the largest age gaps between opposing starters during a postseason game (17 years, 294 days)? Hardly anybody predicted it would happen this way, but the Dodgers are carrying a lot of momentum with last night's victory. There are a lot of Cubs, Dodgers and Indians fans here at EP Minerals, along with several disgruntled San Francisco Giants' fans (the Dodgers' arch enemy)--leading to quite a bit of smack talk.

But, there isn't any smack talk about our Groundskeeper's Choice baseball infield conditioners and products!  Only a lot of endorsements for our complete line of 100% natural, high-performance super calcined clay solutions.

“Thank you for introducing us to BallGame Changer infield conditioner and tell you that I think it is most appropriately named. We found that during the hottest part of our season that we spent less time watering our infield on a daily basis, and our water retention was vastly improved. I will also tell you that we played the last three game of the playoffs her under cloudy, cool and rainy conditions and we never missed a beat. The field was phenomenal and according to feedback from umpires and opposing coaches our playing surface was the best in the league at seasons end! Thanks again for all your help and please keep the game changer coming!!" -Monty Sowell,  Midland Texas RockHounds (Double A affiliate for the Oakland A’s)

“Our field remained moist for a longer period of time, and we are using less water! The field looks great and is easy to work with” -Cesar Carbajal, team leader, USC Baseball

“These specially designed products have been successfully performance-tested at major league, minor league, college, and high school fields around the U.S. with excellent results. BallGame Changer and the PlayBall! products keep your infields safe with better traction, and your infield remains more playable because they do a great job of controlling moisture,” said EP Minerals’ Vice President of Performance Aggregates, Jeff Kitchens.

“BallGame Changer with KT3 is a revolutionary clay infield conditioner,” said Kitchens. “KT3 is a surface technology that changes how the BallGame Changer product interacts with water. You can apply the normal amount of water and conditioner with BallGame Changer as you use today and maintain a higher moisture level for nine innings, reducing dust and additional maintenance factors,” he added.

PlayBall! comes in a drying agent, mound clay, and conditioner. All of the Groundskeeper’s Choice infield products are designed to last longer, reduce dust and water usage, and provide better traction for safer playability.
