Check out a favorite of ballfield professionals…
It’s time to prep the field. Your crew is ready to go to work, but they are waiting on you to provide the information to proceed.
- How far should they trim the back infield arc?
- How many bricks will it take to fortify the front slope of the mound?
- How deep and how wide should you excavate to install the new warning track?
- What is the proper slope for your mound?
Sooo many questions.
After hearing these questions and many more over the years, we decided to write a 32-page guidebook, the Ballfield Dimensions & Reference Guide. It includes a comprehensive collection of information for ballfield professionals. Examples of the information in the guide include:
- Space needs for ballfields
- Laying out your ballfield
- Proper foul line alignment
- How to set base anchors
- How to build a warning track
- Baseball & softball field dimensions for various leagues and all levels
- Pitching mound & pitching rubber installation
- Batter’s box construction details
- Infield area calculations
- Infield soil and topdressing information
If interest in this guide every year at the Sports Turf Manager’s Association (STMA) annual conference is any indication, the Ballfield Dimensions & Reference Guide has become a favorite of ballfield professionals.
