Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation | Under Armour’s New Turf Field – Banner Field at Latrobe Park
Lewis Contractors completed Banner Field—a new youth athletic field at Latrobe Park in Locust Point. The multipurpose synthetic turf field was funded by donations made to the City of Baltimore through Under Armour’s WIN Baltimore Initiative, which strives to empower athletes of the next generation by providing youth greater access to sports. The new field in Latrobe Park comes as part of Under Armour’s continued giving campaign—paying forward to the local Baltimore communities and the revitalization of Locust Point. The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation also partnered in the project to support Under Armour’s effort in providing a recreational facility for the community’s youth and served as the contractual Owner for the duration of the project.
Construction of the 89,000 SF synthetic field includes tiered seating for 150 people, scoreboard, surrounding walk/run path, stadium lighting, and community parking. Now open to the public, the field will be managed by Baltimore Recreation and Parks and will be used for community events and ultimately serve as Digital Harbor High School’s home field. To further enhance Latrobe Park, Under Armour donated new flooring, a shade structure, and play equipment to the existing playground—Lewis Contractors worked cooperatively with Under Armour to install this additional equipment at no delay to the project schedule.
