MILB Kicks off Fall Field Clinics at Durham Athletic Park
It was a hot day on the beautiful patriot bermuda turf field this past friday during MILB’s Field clinic. Every one of our 50+ group attending was pretty excited about the series of clinics planned at the DAP over the next 3 months. We focused on baseball field maintenance tasks during this past week’s event and the next clinic at the park on Oct 22nd will focus on turf management and cultural practices. Chad Olsen Brickman Sportsturf, Scott Strickland from the Durham Bulls ballclub gave hands on advise to building and maintaining the mound and homeplate. Turface’s John Southerland provided an in depth review of infield maintenance and Chad Price, with Carolina Green gave a demonstration of how to laser grade infields and why. Good stuff all the way around. Go to www.Durhamathleticpark@milb.com for more info.
