Alumni Spotlight: Mark Roberts, '88
Award-Winning Baseball Field
Athletic Turf and Field Manager Mark Roberts has made Steward history—the School has won Field of the Year in the school/parks
and recreation category from the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) for the baseball
field. This prestigious award is a first of its kind for Steward, and it is the result
of hard work in maintaining the field. Mr. Roberts will fly to San Antonio in January
to accept the award on the School’s behalf, and there will be an article about Steward
in an upcoming issue of Sports Turf magazine.
Mr. Roberts said that this award “should bring a fair amount of attention to Steward,
and that’s why I do it.” As part of the baseball program, he trains the players to
maintain the field, giving each student a regular job—such as packing the mound or
taking care of home plate—following all practices and games. As a result, he says,
“We get games in when others don’t…because our field can be put back to game condition
“My goal is for these kids to get as close to a college or professional field as they
will find,” Mr. Roberts says. After a 15-year career spent in the athletic fields
business in one aspect or another, he knows his turf.
