WEEKLY FIELD RESPONSIBILITIES

Each softball or baseball division, the teams that make up each division, and the coaches who coach those teams are responsible for weekly maintenance for the fields that they are scheduled to play on. Coaches who do not maintain their scheduled fields may lose field time and/or seniority in the organization. Keeping the park operational and the fields in working order requires all coaches of the association to do their part. 

A field representative for each field needs to be appointed each season. The field representative is responsible for making sure that a maintenance schedule for each field is created and that each team scheduled does its weekly field maintenance. 

DO NOT ATTEMPT ANY INFIELD MAINTENANCE IF YOU CREATE ANY FOOT IMPRESSIONS GREATER THAN ¼” WHEN WALKING ON INFIELD. WHEN IN DOUBT, WAIT FOR THE INFIELD TO DRY MORE.

Weekly Field Maintenance Responsibilities Are:

1. Cut the grass
2. Trim grass along fence lines inside and out
