Reliability, Flexibility and Quality are what I’m looking for in an athletic field maintenance service. Blake has proven he can deliver on all three.

Purdue University Athletics
Blake did a great job laser grading our baseball and softball field infields. Both coaches were happy with their surface when they returned to campus to start practice and we were excited to have everything dialed in again going into their fall seasons. Periodic laser grading of our skinned areas have been key to providing the safest surface to our teams and have helped keep the correct grade for water run off to minimize rain outs. We look forward to working with Blake on future projects.

This past fall we had Marschand's AFS put in a new natural playing surface on our field. They removed our entire existing playing surface, laser graded the surface (including the mound and the plate), and then replanted the field. The work was done in a timely fashion, the guys were great to work with, and they gave us great tips to maintain the surface moving forward. Our community members have made many positive comments about the work that Blake and his crew completed this past fall. I would highly recommend Marschand's AFS for any natural playing surface work.

Taylor High School
I have known Blake Marschand for nearly 20 years as a baseball player, a friend, and a businessman. The thing that I love about Blake is that he is the same person no matter how you know him. A hard worker that cares about people. I have had Blake do a lot of Baseball Diamond work over the past decade. I am the Varsity Coach at Taylor High School in Kokomo and I ran the Taylor, CFD Saints Stadium at Highland Park, and our Home Field at CFD on Goyer Road. Blake never ceases to amaze me on how game ready each field is. His work is impeccable and I would have zero hesitation in recommending Blake’s services to anyone seeking to make their Baseball Field the best Diamond in town!

At UCT Little League we did a 46/60-50/70 field conversion and Blake did a tremendous job helping us accomplish this. He communicates with you and instructs you on how to take care of your fields after he is finished. I would definitely recommend Marschands AFS to everyone!

Blake has done a tremendous job of transforming our field at Northrop High School in Fort Wayne, IN. His attention to detail is unmatched. Blake has worked on our filed on two separate occasions and the results are over the top. We have been very impressed with the results as he explained in great detail what needed to be done and how the plan would be executed.

Western High School
Whether it is a mound rebuild, resurfacing, laying sod, leveling the playing surface, or basic edging and reshaping job, Marschand’s AFS does great work! Blake is professional and cares about his product. I have used Blake to service our baseball field for years and will continue to do so because he is a baseball guy working on baseball fields, and that alone is worth the investment!
Brad King - Head Baseball Coach
New Castle High School
We have had Marschand’s Athletic Field Service to our diamond twice, in the past five years. The first time was to do a complete renovation of the infield, mound, and home plate. The second time they did a quick edge and grade of the infield. Blake is great to work with and regardless of the task their work was simply incredible as well as on time and budget. I would highly recommend Marschand’s AFS for any job.

Blake’s ability to get things done in a timely manner and help keep things within budget, has made Blake the obvious choice for our school corporation.
Kenneth R. Hickman - Athletic Director

I have hired Blake Marschand to improve our athletic fields on several occasions. His knowledge of sports adds a unique value to the service he provides. Blake understands our challenges with budgets, timelines, etc.. and he is able to offer logical solutions. His work has gained my trust and he is the first call I will make when I need some help in the future.
Travis Scott - Head Baseball Coach
Tipton High School
Our field was dire need of repair due to several years of neglect. Blake came in and provided an itemized plan to get us where we needed to be. He was in constant communication throughout the entire process and willing to answer any questions we had. He had several options load out for us and even tried to help us save money wherever he could without compromising the final product. I am extremely happy with the work he did and look forward to working with him in the future to keep our field in top shape. You can tell he really loves the work he does and wants what is best for the customer. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Greg Marschand - Athletic Director/Head Baseball Coach
Lewis Cass High School
I have been blessed and honored to watch Blake Marschand grow up on a baseball field since the day he could walk. His life has been spent on baseball diamonds from youth league and high school days here in the Midwest to college days in Alabama, traveling all throughout the South, and continuing to Hawaii.
I admire the young man that he has become and what he stands for.
I am most impressed with the type of man he is. Blake displays three top qualities it takes to be successful… (1) He is a very humble man always thinking more of others than himself. (2) He is hungry in the way he always makes sure to do things the right way – not the easiest or most convenient, but does what is right. (3) Smart with people – he displays a genuine care and concern about what people think and is willing to go the extra mile to be a servant and help others out.
I would highly recommend Blake for any athletic project you may need completed. Making an investment in Blake Marschand will result in a professional performance that you will be quite proud of. As a proud father and baseball coach for 40 years… I will guarantee your satisfaction.
Muncie Baseball & Softball Association
We had Blake come out to look over one of our fields that was in need of some maintenance early in the spring. He thoroughly explained to us the options we had for making repairs to the diamonds.
Once we decided on what repairs fit into our budget Blake and his crew came out and in 2 days they had reshaped the infield grass, rebuilt the infield and applied a new top dressing to our infield surface. Blake also groomed our other 3 fields which gave them a fresh look for the start of our season. The field looked great through our entire season and best of all whenever it rained the fields drained themselves. We hope to bring Marschand’s AFS back out next Spring to do another field!
