THIS WEEK’S FIELD THOUGHTS

So you are getting ready to make a purchase of a product you need to help you maintain your sports field. You may be inclined to go for the lowest price product available — but are you sure of the impact of that decision? Many times people assume they are making the best decision financially by purchasing the lowest priced product. But the impact it can have on your crew and on your field can be eye-opening. Many look at upfront cost when they see a big price tag and instinctively shut down any further consideration without doing their due diligence to see if it’s actually worth the bigger price tag in the long haul.

EXAMPLE 1: Let’s start with mound clay. Of the three fields at our complex, one is a 90’ diamond used by youth from 13-16 years old, all of whom wear metal cleats. Games are played 7 days a week (2 to 3 games per weeknight and 5 to 7 games per weekend day). That schedule is for 20 weeks per year with only one opportunity per day to maintain the mound & batter’s boxes… Click to continue reading about the real impact of products from Beacon’s head groundskeeper, Paul Zwaska:  Spending Wisely Requires Due Diligence
