STMA announces 'Stars and Stripes'
Contest Winner

Casey Griffin, Groundskeeper for Albuquerque Isotopes



Casey Griffin's design at Isotopes Park in Albuquerque, N.M., won the inaugural 'Stars and Stripes' contest through the Sports Turf Managers Association. As the winner, Griffin has received a complimentary pass to the 2017 STMA Conference.

The Sports Turf Managers Association, a professional association for those who manage sports fields worldwide, held a contest to find the most festive Fourth of July field. Members were asked to upload a photo of their field art design or mowing pattern to Facebook.

Casey Griffin, director of field operations for New Mexico's Albuquerque Isotopes, the Triple-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, received nearly 500 likes for his design, becoming the first 'Stars and Stripes' contest winner.

"STMA's inaugural 'Stars and Stripes' contest is a unique opportunity to support our country through patriotic field designs," says Griffin, who is now in his seventh season with the Isotopes. "We consider ourselves the 'Directors of First Impressions' for millions of sports fans across the U.S. and hope this contest inspires other industry colleagues to express themselves through unique paint and mowing patterns."

As the winner, Griffin has received a complimentary pass to the 2017 STMA Conference and Exhibition at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., January 24-27, 2017. The winning field will also be included in a future STMA publication.
