Latitude 36® Bermudagrass Takes Duke Softball to the Next Level

Latitude 36® Bermudagrass has been a game changer for Duke University softball, suiting the Blue Devils fast style of play. Latitude 36 has some of the best “playability” of any bermuda on the market and is a favorite in the college sports industry. Duke University employs Latitude 36 on numerous athletic fields around campus including football’s Wallace Wade Stadium.

“The Latitude is a very tight grass- balls love to basically skip and roll which for soccer and softball is great. It’s a very fine textured blade of grass that just shows very well on TV,” said Duke’s Director of Athletic Grounds, Ian Christie.

The video below shares more insight into why Christie likes Latitude 36 for Duke Softball.
