The American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) selected Tim Leighton, Henry Ford College head baseball coach, as the recipient of the ABCA/TURFACE Athletics Maintenance Scholarship Award in the College Division.
TURFACE Athletics will award HFC's baseball program with three tons of TURFACE MVP, an infield conditioner used on baseball diamonds that manages moisture, improves drainage and resists compaction. HFC will also receive $250 for field maintenance equipment for the next two years, making the total scholarship valued at more than $5,000.
Additionally, TURFACE recognized the HFC baseball program at the 2017 Honors Luncheon, held on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at noon in the Grand Ballroom of the Anaheim Marriott, located in Anaheim, California.
