baseball field maintenance handbook

Dear Baseball Insiders,

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 maintenance:
Get the new baseball field maintenance handbook and 7 new additional guides.

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 book:

  • 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.

  • And more and more players, coaches, parents, and umpires will look forward to playing on your fields!

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

Bonus #1: Sample Baseball Field ProjectsBonus #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.

Bonus #4: Checklists, Diagrams, & Charts Bonus #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.

But wait, there's more!
