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.

Meet the Hosts

Coaches, players and groundskeepers all have a vested interested in our playing surfaces, who is listening to whom and what can we all learn from each other? Have you talked to your coach lately? Our Outta the Park interview is with Jack Warren, a veteran coach who hosts a very successful coaching podcast (Top Coach) about what we can learn from coaches and what coaches are interested in learning from us.


A Mushroom Walks in to a Bar… (May 18, 2016)

Today’s episode is named for a classic joke and if you’re a friend of Theresa’s you’ve heard it, probably too often. But we are going to talk about disease in our Turf Science segment, so it needed to be told.

We start things off, however, with a Bullpen conversation about coaches and Paul’s experience with them in both the Major and Little Leagues. Coach talk continues in the Outta the Park interview Jack Warren (Owner, Cornbelt Sports), a veteran coach and host of the very popular Top Coach Podcast. Jack has some great insight about what we can learn from coaches but also about what coaches are interested in learning from and working with us on.
