Young Taiwan GroundCrew makes it happen!
Just outside of Tainan City, Taiwan there is a special little field maintained by some very special little people. I would have to say this might be the youngest groundcrew I have ever seen. Each with a job and task to prepare the field for the game. What a sight to see kids doing the work of adults and having fun doing it.
This type of culture being implemented into children’s minds at such an early age is remarkable. My hat is off to Li Chang who shared this amazing story and photos of what they are doing at this little league field. Hopefully the tips we have shown him will help make this a better program. They have developed a maintenance program for the kids to follow. I would have to say this would probably never be seen in the USA, but who knows.
If you make things fun, kids will do it and To these guys it’s a fun task. I like how they water the dirt and the “shape” of the field is actually made with water. Very creative! ! This is truly Inspirational for all of us in the sportsturf industry. What if we could get all of our neighborhoods to do this!
