Ball diamond maintenance is a regular, necessary and costly procedure. Ball diamonds require regular grooming and good maintenance practices to keep them looking good and in a safe condition for public use. This program will illustrate best practices and maintenance standards to attendees. This program will help you to understand why proper maintenance is important, how to maintain the diamond properly and safely and what products are out there to help you out when conducting maintenance. 
This course will cover:
  • Fundamentals of General Field Maintenance
  • Pitcher’s Mound Maintenance
  • A Front Line Worker's Role
  • Ball Diamond / Fields Checklist for Risk Management Objectives
  • Striping, Lining and Logos
  • Irrigation and Drainage on Infields
  • Dragging, Infield Grooming Practices and Equipment
