Field Maintenance


First Practice/Game
• Install bases and keep plugs in roof of 1st base dugout. Dig out tool should be in roof of 1st base dugout.
• Turn breaker to ON position for your field.  Field 5-10 electrical panel is between clubhouse and Field 7.  Field 11-12 panel is on the walkway between those fields.
• Pick up score box and plug it in.  Score boxes for Field 5-10 are stored in the clubhouse.  Field 11 & 12 boxes are in the Field 11 shed


During Practices
• Protect the field
     - Use batter's box mats
     - Do NOT let players to warm-up on foul lines or infield grass
     - Do NOT intentionally hit or throw balls into fences 
     - Do NOT setup drills in grass areas that will have a negative impact on the grass
     - Watch that players DO NOT dig holes in grass 
• Rake Dirt
     - Maintain grade around bases and in player positions by filling in low spots after doing drills. Rake down high areas around bases with the flat side of the rake.
     - Fill low spots around home plate in batters' box and catchers' box. Any low spot that catches water will impact the field's ability to drain properly.

After Each Practice/Game
• Pick up trash from dugout and spectator area
• Fill in low spots at bases and home
• Repair pitchers mound/area (Coach Pitch Fields and Field 9)
• Insure that the field equipment is kept on hooks of 1st base dugout

After Last Practice/Game
• Fill in low spots at bases and home plate
• Remove Batter Box Mats if rain is in the overnight forecast
• Remove bases and install base plugs (bases can sit up at edge of infield grass)
• Sweep dirt from edge of grass back into the playing area
• Cycle the scoreboard breaker to shut off scoreboard----Leave breaker in OFF position
• Verify umpires have returned score box
• Insure that the field equipment is kept on hooks of 1st base dugout

If you borrow tools from another field, PLEASE return them to their appropriate spot. These steps will help us keep our park in great shape.
