Baseball Field Maintenance Handbook


Dear Baseball
If you hate the bad hops on your field … can’t stand the poor footing
… and are just plain embarrassed when others see your playing fields…
…now you can have better play more often using the same field maintenance
tips and techniques the pros use.
It’s the surest way to turn even a mediocre sports field into a
championship field and enjoy a better baseball experience… in
just a few weeks, a few days, or even just minutes — and at virtually
no extra cost.
I believe sports programs can help our youth develop lifelong habits
for success. You don’t want their dream to slip away due to a poor
sports field.
So, I’ve put together a special package for you to master field
Get the new baseball field maintenance handbook and 7 new additional
I want to help men and women like you transform their sports fields
into a field of dreams where our youth reach their fullest potential
and you have no regrets.
For the past 11 years I have refined my baseball field maintenance
skills by spending time with MLB and AAA groundskeepers, with sports
turf managers, and with suppliers of field products for professional
sports. During that period I also renovated 49 baseball and softball
fields and had the privilege of consulting on hundreds of other
new construction and renovation projects.
The new field maintenance handbook along with its tips can save
you time and money while helping the youth in your sports programs
reach their fullest potential. You and your team and your organization
need this information. They are counting on you.
I call it a “How To” Guide to Transforming Your Baseball Field into
a Winning Field because if you use this baseball field maintenance

You don’t
need high priced equipment available only to major league sports
and golf courses.

You don’t
need a five or six figure budget to have a winning baseball
or softball field.

You don’t
need a crew of full time sports managers. You just need a few
people who know what is going on and what to do.

A quality
field lets your coaching and organization’s efforts stand out.
Now you don’t need to be embarrassed when teams visit your ‘yard.’

You can
use equipment and materials readily available at local home
improvement stores or local rental shops.

You can
quickly reach a point where you identify exactly what you need
to do and develop a specific plan to make the improvements.

In short, you
become comfortable with baseball field maintenance and sport field
management while staying well within your comfort zone and your

#1: Sample Baseball Field Projects
In this special report (31 pages) I show you how to get the most
out of what you put into your field renovation and upgrade projects
so you too can have a winning sports field.
So, before you just head off to the local big box home improvement
store and load up on supplies and rental equipment, it’s good to
have a plan.
Your best plan will be the result of doing a little homework to
identify and prioritize your improvement efforts. The field audit
or assessment checklist is the tool to use. The checklist covers
all aspects of your ball park including topics most folks don’t
even think about.
In this report I show you a real life example of using the audit
to identify action required. Then I show you how to put together
the list of tools and supplies needed and how to outline your actual
work day so you know exactly what you are going to be doing.
Then I finish out this special report with detailed sample projects
that are typical across all levels of play. You will more than likely
find samples that fit your needs. You can then use these as starters
and customize them specifically for you.
And lastly, these checklists and project plans are great tools for
communicating with your director, board, or volunteers. It can also
help with your budget planning and getting everyone on board with
common expectations.

#2: How to Make and Paint Field Logos
In this special report about Field Logos (106 action packed pages)
I show you why:
• you too can make stencils for painting logos and designs on your
baseball fields and why…
• these painting tips can help your baseball field look sharp while
saving you time and money!
This special report is filled with step by step pictures covering
the following ‘need to know’ information:
1. Preparation – designs, stencils, turf readiness, field location
and size
2. Applying spray paint: aerosol & nozzles
3. Applying roller paint: mixing and rolling
4. Turf care and mowing with a logo
5. Logos on dirt: paint and conditioner
6. Tips, hints, mistakes to avoid

#3: Game Day Preparation with the Seattle Mariners
In this special report (61 action packed pages) you will learn:
• How the grounds crew prepares for the day’s game as soon as the
previous night’s game ends and why
• these tips can save you time and money while helping your sports
field be a championship field too.
Some of the things you will learn include the following:
– Mow 2 times or more a week for the best turf
– Drag slow each day for the best infield dirt
– Manage grass edges regularly to prevent lips

I spent two days with head groundskeeper Bob Christopherson and
his crew with STMA in mid July. See how they take care of their
bluegrass field in the pacific northwest during pleasant 70 degree

#4: Checklists, Diagrams, & Charts
In this special report (25 pages) I show you how to identify and
prioritize your improvement efforts and ensure you get it done right.
If you are like me you don’t have an unlimited amount of time and
money to spend on sports field maintenance and upgrades.So, how
do you identify and prioritize your improvement efforts? What should
you spend your time and money on? And how do you know the projects
you pick to work on really keep your sports field safe and playable
for your players?The answer
is to use an audit or assessment checklist. The list covers all
aspects of your ball park including topics most folks don’t even
think about. As you go through the list and its components, ask
yourself if your field has that problem. If so, you can identify
what you will do about it.Once you
walk out on your ballpark and fill out the assessment you can then
see the priority areas and consider what it will take to improve
it. Start to identify the work and tools and materials, if any,
that are needed for the fix. Then you
can begin to formulate a schedule and your workday. But I am getting
ahead of myself. Work day planning is a whole other topic in a different
special report.The audit
checklist is designed for you to print it out and take it with you
as you walk your ball park. Take notes and write your comments and
thoughts. Then return to your office or work area and take a look
at the findings and your own recommendations.This is
a great tool for communicating with your director, board, or boss.
It can help with budget planning and work planning. I personally
try to use this audit in late fall or early winter for the spring
budget planning and again in the mid summer for the fall ball planning.
