THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

You’re probably fairly confident about how to lay down your foul lines… the string line should be anchored so your foul line will be entirely in fair territory; the foul edge of the foul line will line up exactly with the foul edge of the base; and, pull the string line as tight as possible then snap it to straighten it. Module 106. Creating Foul Lines at GroundskeeperU.com gives you all the info you need.

But there’s more than just foul lines. For tips on setting up your runner’s lane, softball pitcher’s circle, batter’s box, catcher’s box, and coach’s box, you’ll want to reference the Groundskeeper University lesson, Laying Out Your Ballfield. It’s full of great tips for getting it all right.
