THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

Fall can be a great time to revisit some areas of your field that have maybe never gotten the attention they deserve. One of those areas might be your warning track. Getting it right for the age of the players using your field is important for playability and safety.

The warning track should be wide enough to give players a 3-step warning (at a full-speed run) that they are approaching a barrier. Their first step onto the track alerts them with a different texture under their feet. Their second and third steps allow players to decelerate before making contact with the barrier. With that in mind, the width of the warning track is determined by the oldest age group using the field…  To make sure you’re getting it right, continue reading on Ballfields.com with our how-to: Building the Warning Track…
