MLB Field & Venue Maintenance Clinic in Dominican Republic

field clinic group.JPGMLB’s Field & Venue Maintenance clinic was held today at the Yankees Training academy in the Dominican Republic.  We had over 60 participants representing all 30 MLB clubs in attendance plus Sports turf managers from all of the winter League Clubs.   This being our 3rd clinic in the DR,  I can clearly see the great improvements that are taking place in the fields as well as the expanding knowledge base of sound maintenance practices from each of the clubs grounds staff.
