How to fix lip build up and overgrown grass edge

Dear Baseball Insiders,

Most baseball fields eventually get a BIG lip build up if preventative measures aren't taken. This little league field got a huge lip buildup for a couple reasons.

I couldn't believe it.  My 10 year old came off the field limping. 
He twisted his right ankle so bad he could hardly walk.

Here's what happened. 

He plays shortstop.  His team traveled to another field to play. 
Their field had a lip so big it's like a speed bump at the edge of the infield dirt.
He went back on a popup and stumbled and fell at this huge bump. 

Now is the time to fix problems like this. 
Many fields have some downtime in the summer.
This is perfect for fixing lips, cutouts, and mounds
.

Here are four resources for you. 
Either as a reminder or for those who desperately need this information now.

1. Turf maintenance and lip removal project.
Too much loose dirt added and dragging too fast over the grass edge. 
Result?  Your very own speed bump right in the middle of your field.

2. Fixing lip buildup. 
Dirt gets on the grass edge from dragging or from play.
A ridge or lip builds up and causes bad bounces. You need to fix this.

3. Edging your field like a pro.
A photo story shows how you can have perfectly straight lines just like MLB teams.

4. Using a sod cutter
A versitile tool to cut lines, remove sod and lip build up.

Do your coaching efforts stand out?
Are your players at peak performance?

p.s. In the queue: painting field logos - designs, stencils, paint selection, application, and ongoing care.  Look for this in the coming weeks.
