The Lerner company wanted the backstop behind home plate to simulate the canal walls in Georgetown, and so they turned to Rugo Stone. We suggested and sourced a local mica-schist quarry, Carderock, to be used for the sawn bed rock-faced rubble stone ashlar walls which rest behind home plate.
Rugo’s skilled stonemasons exhibited their significant experience in this old world craft to hand-cut these walls, creating a unique stone appearance that ties the ballpark to historic Washington DC.
