THIS WEEK’S FIELD THOUGHTS

Hitting and pitching mats are another tool in the groundskeeper’s tool box for maintaining the mound and home plate wear areas. They provide two major benefits to the playing surface. First, they eliminate the wear that would normally occur in the batter’s boxes or the front of the mound when any kind of practice is occurring. And secondly, the mat helps to manage the moisture in the clay areas beneath the mat during practice since normally in the past those two clay areas would have sat out in the open, susceptible to the evaporative forces of sun, wind and low humidities. These are the culprits that can rapidly steal valuable moisture from these high-wear areas…
