Building an Ice Rink on a baseball field

Ice park 5.jpgIts not something every groundskeeper wants to hear that there field will become an ice rink in the winter months. It has become a standard of operation in Lancastor PA. at Clipper Magazine Baseball Stadium where every winter for the past few years the right field area is removed and slightly graded and the ice floor is installed. This floor is used for numerous activities throughout the winter months and then taken down around mid to late february.  Probably takes about 10 days for installation,  but in these tough economic times…additional revenue in the off season is pretty important to a lot of clubs. As we speak the ice floor is being installed at fenway park for a bruins hockey match.   Our guys have a bit of work to do in the spring but thats the sports venue world we live in.
