THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP
With less action on your fields, and maybe some fall renovation project planned or underway, it’s a great time to take inventory of your tools. Like any craftsman, an athletic field groundskeeper relies heavily upon the tools he or she uses to hone their craft of maintaining ballfields. From basic tools like rakes and shovels to the more specialized tools like a level board or slope gauge, groundskeepers use a wide range of hand tools to accomplish their work with a varying attention to detail.
You probably have ideas of what some of these tools are used for. You may or may not be right. A seasoned groundskeeper will likely show you several other ways he or she has used that tool for groundskeeping tasks. You may even find some tools you weren’t aware of.
