Ball Diamond Specials from BEACON Ballfields ! (May)

Check out this week’s Anniversary Specials on bases!

THIS WEEK’S FIELD THOUGHTS

A well-maintained ballfield has a smooth surface, both on grass and skinned areas. But in contrast stand the bases, protruding up from the smooth surface. One wrong step, one improper slide, and injury can occur. It is up to the groundskeeper to minimize that risk.

Visit our Groundskeeper University module on bases to see how frequent base inspection and base care — along with proper maintenance to the playing surface surrounding the bases — goes a long way toward reducing the risk of player injury. This module is presented in two sections covering Safety & Base Care and On-field Maintenance & Placement. Like all Groundskeeper U lessons and modules, photo, video and audio aids help bring you up to speed.

Click to see the tips & techniques regarding bases and base care from former Orioles’ head groundskeeper and GU author, Paul Zwaska: 107. Base Placement & Care
