Belated Thanks to the Groundcrew in San Juan

the crew.JPGJust getting off the road for an extended trip here and there.  Summer has really been busy for sportsturf.  Nevertheless I wanted to thank the guys from San Juan for the great job they did in San Juan during the Mets vs. Marlins Series.  We went in thinking it was going to be pretty easy but soon found out we had more to do than ever.

We had a few scares with mother nature which included a rain delayed Weds night game but we were able to get it in. We played from June to July!
