About Beacon Athletics

Beacon 70 Years

WE ARE BEACON. The Ultimate Ballfield Resource.

Consider us part of your team. For the past 70 years, we’ve been your ‘experts in the field’. It’s been an honor to help groundskeepers and field managers from around the country maintain their fields. And our era of innovation is not finished. We continue to strive every day for the best, smartest solutions that will make your job easier.

As kids, we shagged flies and grounders till dusk … As adults, we’ve passed on our love of the game to our own kids, making sure they always have the best ballfields to play on. Fields that will give them a thrill every time they step up to the plate. At Beacon Athletics we’ve been helping America maintain and improve its playing fields since 1948. We work with almost every major and minor league team in the country, as well as hundreds of schools, clubs, municipalities and recreation programs all the way down to the t-ball level.

We are innovators. We’re out on our own test fields every day, developing products that simply do the job better — like the Streamliner Field Chalker or the SweetSpot Tamp. And we do it with the help of Beacon’s own Paul Zwaska, the former head groundskeeper for the Baltimore Orioles and a man who eats, sleeps, and breathes ballfield maintenance. You can count on more than 60 years of experience guiding us with product design, material specifications, and craftsmanship.

If you have a youth program that you’re struggling with, we can tell you ways to make it more successful. Even if you just want to call and talk field maintenance, we’re happy to do that, too.

Everything we do, we do for the love of the game.

Beacon is a proud member of the NRPAWe’re conveniently headquartered in Middleton, Wisconsin, just outside of Madison. For us, it’s all about exceptional service, value, and performance (click here to learn about “The Beacon Promise”). As a proud recipient of the 2013 Dane County Small Business Award, we know those are the things that really matter. We were also named one of the “Best Places to Work” in 2015 by Madison Magazine, and we’ll carry that good vibe on to you. That’s the Beacon Advantage.
