Beacon Athletics Diamond DaVincis

Let's talk ballfields.

This podcast is dedicated to the artistry and science of sports field management. Diamond Davincis celebrates the men and women in the sports field industry whose fields are their canvas. This podcast will discuss ballfields and their artists at all levels — from the little leagues to the bigs, and everywhere in between. From time to time we may venture into the world of football and soccer groundskeeping. Golf? Forget about it! They have their own shows. We hope to educate, inform and entertain you with interviews from around the sports field management industry. Give your mind a break while working on your fields and give us a listen.

Today’s episode welcomes back Larry DiVito (Head Groundskeeper, Minnesota Twins) for our Outta the Park interview where we talk to Larry about his methods and theories on infield cutouts. They’re designed for function in a lot of ways, but there’s also the aesthetic to consider as the look of the infield can very quickly define your park.

And we’re trying something new – we’ve shortened the podcast and are focusing only on our interview segment. We’d love to know what you think – sure, Paul and Theresa love to listen to themselves talk, but really, this podcast is for you.

So, what do you think? Click here to send us an email with your input. Be as specific as you like or just write Yes to keep the new format, No to go back to the old style.
