THIS WEEK’S FIELD TIP
CUT IT OUT ! As baseball and softball seasons are winding down around the country, many sports turf managers are contemplating annual fall renovation of their ballfields to prepare them for next spring’s season. Often it means putting the field to bed for the winter ready to play for next spring. Part of that renovation often includes edging the infield skinned turf edges. Beacon’s Paul Zwaska talks about what’s left to the discretion of the groundskeeper and more in this article on Ballfields.com: Cut It Out!
For more information and stories about this topic, listen to Beacon’s Diamond DaVincis podcast from July 28, 2016, titled “Cut It Out!” Paul and Theresa’s guest is Minnesota Twins Head Groundskeeper Larry DiVito. Together they explore and explain this topic with a few humorous stories thrown in.
