 Beacon Weekly Field Tips For You !

THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP

When scarifying or nail dragging your infield skin, never penetrate deeper than the depth of a baseball cleat (about 3/8″). The same holds true with the depth of your topdressing material on an infield skin. We want a loose “cushioning layer” on the surface of an infield to provide some resiliency but you don’t want to compromise the firm base needed for traction. An excessive topdressing layer or nail scarification ( > than 1/2″ depth) will decrease or eliminate the traction that players need. This will increase the risk for groin, hamstring, leg, knee and ankle injuries.
