THIS WEEK’S QUICK TIP  !
You know the most common problem areas… the mound in front of the pitching rubber and the batter’s box. Metal cleats dig into the soil more, creating deeper holes. Rubber or plastic cleats will compact the soil more than dig. These problem areas can become extremely hard from the compaction due to rubber cleats, especially on fields with younger players wearing rubber cleats. To withstand the wear and tear, you’ll need to fortify these areas with one of two types of fortification: clay fortification or barrier mats. To continue learning about this topic check out the Groundskeeper University lesson, 102. Mound & Home Plate Care — Common Wear Areas…

Final Vote for New Concession Item at Fifth Third Ballpark !

Dutch_Love_Sand

COMSTOCK PARK, MI  – For over eight years the public has decided what will be the next star on the Fifth Third Ballpark menu when the West Michigan Whitecaps start their season in 2017.

The Whitecaps along with their partner Zeeland Food Services, Inc. asked fans to submit ideas for what new food items they would like to see at the ballpark this summer. The food idea submissions have now been pared down, and starting today, Thursday, February 23, fans will be able to vote for their choice for the new 2017 concessions item.

Below is a complete list and description of the 10 finalists:

Deep Fried Bubble Gum: Chewing gum and baseball has been synonymous. It’s in packs of baseball cards, it’s in the clubhouse, it’s in the dugout and now it’s in the deep fryer !  Deep Fried Bubble gum is a home run of an idea !

Dessert Fries: (fries with ice cream toppings) The age long dispute between those that like sweet and those that like savory has been settled. Dessert Fries have the perfect amounts of French Fries, chocolate and strawberry sauce.  It’s a sweet and savory paradise where everyone is welcome!

The Last Samuroll: (uncut sushi roll and coated it in batter. Deep fried and served with Siracha mayo).  From the Land of the Rising Sun comes the biggest import since Pokemon!  We’re going take that sushi roll put it on a stick, deep fry it and add a little Siracha!  It won’t be the Last Samuroll you’ll ever eat.

I Full Tower: (footlong corn dog surrounded in onion rings). This incredible concoction could easily become the 8th wonder of the modern world just from its sheer beauty.  A footlong corndog surrounded by onion rings is not only appeasing to the eye, but will make your taste buds say, “C’est fantastique”

Beercheese Poutine: (fries, pulled pork bbq sauce, beercheese sauce, green onions). We’re going to show those Canadians a thing or two about food!  Take fries add pulled pork, bbq sauce, beercheese sauce and green onions put them all together and it makes all of our friends from the Great White North switch from ‘Eh to Heeeeeey!

The Alan Spammell: (fried Spam, mac ‘n cheese, bacon) Fried Spam and mac ‘n cheese might be a better duo than Alan Trammell and Lou Whitaker… That’s a stretch, but you can chalk this up to be the best double play combo of the 2017 fan food voting.  Fried spam, mac n’ cheese, topped with bacon and served on bun is truly a pitcher’s best friend.

Cy Youngdae: (donut sandwich with strawberries and whipped cream) Having a donut, great!  Two donuts, amazing!  Add strawberries and whip cream sandwiched between two donuts is the Cy Young of all desserts!  This will go down as arguably the greatest dessert in history.  

Nacho Mama’s PB&J: (deep fried peanut butter and jelly coated in Doritos) The days of trading your sandwich at the school lunch table are over! The traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich has been schooled.

Mighty Mac Dog: (hot dog, mac ‘n cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato on a pretzel bun). All Michiganders know to cross from the Mitten to the U.P. you use the Mighty Mac.  When you cross baseball and amazing you get the Mighty Mac Dog! After eating this you’ll never be cross again.

Hula Chicken Dance: (half pineapple hollowed out and served with teriyaki chicken and rice). From the land of poi, Don Ho and Barak Obama comes this mix of Hawaii and Japan.  Take a pineapple, craft into a bowl then fill it with rice and Teriyaki chicken.  So good it will give a third meaning to Aloha – “more please!”

Last year’s winner was Dutch Love (a miraculous combination of pot roast, cheese curds, French fries and turkey gravy).

Voting will run through Friday, March 3, and will take place on the Whitecaps website and will be announced later in March.

The winning entry will be on the menu for all fans to enjoy. The Whitecaps open the 2017 season on Thursday, April 6, against the South Bend Cubs at 6:35 pm. Season, group tickets and individual tickets are now on sale.

Plans for 109-acre Sportspark move forward in Warren County !

multi_sports_fields#2
LEBANON, OH  —
Plans for an 109-acre Warren County Sports Complex at Union Village were supported Thursday by the Warren County Regional Planning Executive Committee.

The recommendation for approval, another step toward completion of the project, was lauded by Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices, owners of more than 1,400 acres south of Springboro, where the complex is to be a key component of the Union Village planned community.

“We are thrilled to have a sports complex anchoring the northern part of what we hope will become Union Village,” Gary Horning, vice president of marketing and communications for Otterbein Senior Lifestyle Choices, said in an email.

The commission’s executive committee, made up of officials from throughout Warren County, reviewed plans and standards for the facility, off Greentree Road and Ohio 741, within the Union Village development.

Work could begin in March or April.

The park is to include 12 multi-use fields, four baseball diamonds, two championship multi-sport fields, two championship baseball fields and two concession stand and restroom facilities on the northwest corner of the the proposed village.

The park is planned on both sides of Turtlecreek Twp. Park, on Greentree Road, and across Ohio 741 from Warren County’s Armco Park.

Additional netting and tree plantings were recommended by the committee to buffer the facility and its lights from neighboring properties and the roads.

But the committee supported the paln largely as submitted.

It is still subject to approval by the Warren County Board of Commissioners.

Otterbein has agreed to donate the land for the sports complex, provided a cost and tax sharing plan is worked out for the Union village development.

This week, Turtlecreek Twp. submitted plans for a community authority which would assess property owners and visitors to help pay for amenities and maintenance of the development expected to take shape over the next 30 to 50 years.

Earlier this month, the Turtlecreek Twp. trustees submitted proposed tax abatements of 50 percent of property tax on homes and 100 percent of property taxes on commercial development for 30 years.

The sports park is to be operated by the Warren County Convention & Visitors Bureau (WCCVB) and funded largely through an additional lodging tax from local hotels.

After the meeting, Phil Smith, executive director, said approval of the tax by the county commissioners remained a “work in progress”.

BEACON Ballfields Weekly Field Tips ! ( Feb.’17.)

Qualite
Feb. 20, 2017       |       BeaconAthletics.com        |       Ballfields.com

THIS WEEK’S QUICK TIP
The purpose of nail dragging — or scarifying — the infield skin is to remove cleat marks and other imperfections that can hamper an infield’s playability. Cleats are typically about 3/8″ long, so your nail drag depth should be no deeper than 1/4 – 1/2″. The grooves in the base soil left by a nail drag help infield topdressing (or the top 1/2″ of soil) remain in place. When nail dragging, you’ll need to go over the infield twice — the second pattern cutting perpendicular to the first. This “cross-cutting” prevents infields from developing ripples, giving you a consistently smooth surface that’s more playable. To continue learning about this topic check out the Groundskeeper University lesson, Scarifying the Infield Skin…

Regional Sports Plex put on market for $5.3 million !

Lights#1   Mr. Tim Stonecipher and nine investors broke ground in June 2007 on a vacant west McCracken County lot, a “bean field” on Highway 60 that became the Paducah Regional Sports Plex.

   “None of us did this to get a (major) return on our investment,” said Stonecipher, who originally conceived of the project and retains an ownership stake. “We did it for other reasons.

   “We wanted to be God-centered, number one. We wanted to increase the economic impact of the area, and of course, the overall wellness of the community.”

    Nearly a decade later, the ownership group is ready to sell. The multi-use, climate-controlled indoor sports facility, which encompasses roughly 80,000 square feet and sits on 39 acres, went on the market 10 days ago. The asking price is $5.3 million.

The sports plex draws 150,000 visitors annually for basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball and other activities. Over the years it has hosted everything from dog agility competitions to mixed martial arts to roller derby.

Indoor_Sports

Stonecipher outlined ownership’s decision.

“We all committed to five years, and we’ve been in this now for a decade,” he said. “We are ready to pass the baton. We feel like somebody will have new, fresh ideas and can take it to the next level and further the goals we had.

“We don’t want this to be misunderstood. We’re not closing any part of the facility, and this isn’t a matter of, ‘Oh, no. The plex is financially caving.’ It really is that we’ve put in 10 years, a lot more time than we thought, and we’re ready to hand it off. We know there are people out there with great, fresh ideas for the property.”

Sirk & Company Real Estate in Paducah is listing the property.

Ben Sirk described the sports plex as one of the area’s most “unique” properties, one benefitted by proximity to Kentucky Oaks Mall, Interstate 24, Barkley Regional Airport and McCracken County High School. It’s also in a growing part of the county.

“Over the last 10 years especially, every user and tenant that wants to locate a business in Paducah, primarily retail, wants to be on Highway 60 and they want to be as close to the mall as they can be,” Sirk said.

“It’s a little bit down the road from where the majority of developments are now, but again, this is a destination-type property.  It draws its own crowd.”

Stonecipher said roughly half the people who visit the indoor facility each year come from outside of Paducah and McCracken County. He estimates the sports plex has a $9 million annual impact on the local economy.

“There’s just not another place like ours until you get to Nashville,” he said.

Sirk said it’s early in the sale process, and interest in the sports plex hasn’t gone beyond initial inquiries. He said there’s no telling when a sale might be completed.

“Marketing a property like this really is a completely different animal from marketing just a residential house or lot,” he said. “Finding a user or buyer can be difficult, especially in western Kentucky. We’re marketing this thing worldwide.

“The main focus is to just get this in front of as many eyeballs as possible because it only takes one buyer. The name of the game is maximum exposure.”

There are 12 options for potential buyers or leasers, Sirk said. Packages are available for seven commercial lots fronting Highway 60, leasing 12,688 square feet within the sports plex, or buying the property outright, he said.

McCracken County Commissioner Bill Bartleman said the sports plex has been an attraction for out-of-towners and an amenity for local residents.

“It’s an important piece of real estate, and they have an important product there,” he said. “It brings people into the community.

“I think the county would like to see that continue to be operated in the way it is now and probably expanded. I think it maybe has never reached its potential of what it could do for the community. If the right developer comes in with some innovation it could be an even bigger attraction.”

THIS WEEK’S QUICK TIP

When mowing, never cut more than one-third of the blade of grass. Mowing more than 1/3 of the shoot height will significantly lower the rate of photosynthesis. This will create a shallower root system which will weaken the turf. Click here to continue learning about this topic at the Groundskeeper U lesson, Moisture Management Around the Field
