Best, quickest, cheapest way to fix a damage turf area

Dear Baseball Insiders,

This time of year some turf areas are showing damage from over use, under watering, or soccer games in the rain.

What is the best, quickest and maybe cheapest way to get grass to grow again in a damaged area of a baseball field?

Some of my subscribers are high school and college players themselves.  
One recently sent me this plea for help:

"My school's baseball field was severely damaged by a game of soccer in the rain. There is an entire patch on the left field where the game was held that has absolutely no grass and the earth is uneven thanks to the holes made by soccer players. I need the field to be in great conditions for an upcoming softball tournament in 4 weeks which is going to be a big fundraiser for my class. What do I do to get grass to grow again?"

Unfortunately, this is an all too common problem on fields shared by baseball, soccer, and football. The other sports don't seem to mind playing in the mud or wet ground. But this is bad for baseball when it's your turn to use the field.

Here's what to do to get grass to grow and flatten out the ground:

Sorry. I'm trying to figure this out. Obviously I'm better with my fingers in the dirt or on a baseball than on the computer.)

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

best regards,

Jim
