THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

As you know, the common wear areas on the mound and where batter’s and catcher’s cleats dig in around home plate need extra attention. An excellent way to maintain playability and effectively fortify these areas is to add clay. Fortifying with clay is effective, but also requires more maintenance. You can also consider porous rubber barrier mats buried slightly below the soil. This week we take a look at repairing high wear areas fortified with clay. Learn how to repair clay-fortified areas at the Groundskeeper University lesson Module 102. Mound & Home Plate Care: Repairing Clay-Fortified Areas
