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.

This is what happens when the busy season hits Paul head on. Theresa takes over and it’s all about finding the right balance on today’s episode when we discuss fertilizer and family. Plus we talk with Steve Wightman (former Head Groundskeeper, San Diego Padres and Chargers) as part of the Legends Series in our Outta the Park interview.

Balance of Power (May 4, 2016)

How do you find the right balance? Today Theresa takes over for Paul as he battles his way through the busy season in the warehouse and we’re looking for balance all over the place. In the Turf Maintenance segment we look for the right balance between helping the turf recover during the summer and not over fertilizing the cool-season grasses on native soil? And in the Bullpen discussion we talk about the family/work balance and getting a little more quality time in when there’s so little time available during the season.

For today’s Outta the Park interview we’ll continue our Legends Series with Steve Wightman (former Head Groundskeeper, San Diego Padres and Chargers). Steve didn’t study turf management in school but still became up a top level groundskeeper with tons of excellent experiences to share with us.

Segments: Turf Maintenance, Outta the Park, Bullpen
