THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP
Extend the life of your full infield tarp. Dealing with full field tarps can be a daunting task, but there are several things that can make using them a bit easier.

With a full tarp that covers your infield turf, always use a white, silver/white or light-colored tarp. This will attract less sun and reduce the risk of burning the turf under your full tarp.
If you can, use a heavyweight full tarp. Heavier tarps may take more people to maneuver but are much easier to handle in windy conditions than lightweight tarps.
Always try to put your tarp away dry – it will be a lot lighter and easier to deploy the next time it is needed.
Keep your tarp clean and free of debris – this will dramatically reduce the overall wear & tear and may extend its life by a couple of seasons.
Rotate the orientation of your tarp on occasion so you are not repeatedly folding it along the same seams. This minimizes the weakening of the vinyl coating as the tarp ages. When it’s not in use, keep your tarp covered, protecting it from the sun to minimize excessive or uneven UV exposure.
Repair holes as soon as they are detected. Patches should be cut in circles instead of squares, as corners tend to get caught and separate easier than a rounded edge.
