ECU's football field gets upgrade

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Bagwell Field at Dowdy-Ficklen is getting some brand new grass after years of wear and tear on the surface.

The turf manager for East Carolina University, Joey Perry, has been the care keeper of Bagwell Field for year. He told 9 On Your Side that hundreds of games, along with paint buildup, led to some unevenness on the field along with some bare patches.

The new sod being placed onto the field makes the playing surface completely even.

Perry said they are using about two acres of sod, and it should take about two weeks to complete.
