Installation: Pro League Elite Heritage Red is an ideal topdressing material for skinned infields. At the start of the season, apply 2-3 pallets of product as a topdressing. Refresh areas of the infield by applying 50-pound bags as needed.

The recommended rate of application for a 1/4-inch topdressing is 500 pounds per 1,000 square feet. This equates to ten 50-pound bags per 1,000 square feet or about three pallets on a standard baseball infield of 11,000 square feet of dirt.
