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. Email questions directly to podcast@beaconathletics.com.

To conclude our 2 part series about the Bossard family legacy in sports turf we speak with Roger Bossard (Head Groundskeeper, Chicago White Sox). We also introduce a new segment today: Diamond DaVincis Maintenance Calendar (though we don’t love the name). And Paul and Theresa discuss how they are “turf related” and how it all began before they even met.

All in the Turf Family (July 6, 2015)

We began today with our new segment, the Diamond DaVincis Maintenance Calendar – while we don’t love the title, we’re excited to start this segment designed to help us plan ahead instead of just trying to keep up. In the Outta The Park Interview we conclude our 2 part series learning about the Bossard family legacy in sports turf by speaking with Roger Bossard (Head Groundskeeper, Chicago White Sox) about his family’s past, present and future in the industry. After the interview Paul and Theresa discuss how they are “turf related” and how they’ve been on course to know each other since well before they even met.
