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.

Meet the Hosts

In today’s spring-tastic episode we discuss how we determine if a field is likely in need of spring soil testing or if a field is a good candidate for regular tissue testing (a great time to start is when the grass is freshly out of winter dormancy). In the Outta the Park Interview we call on Darian Daily (Head Sports Field Manager, Paul Brown Stadium) to school us on the ins and outs of Fraise Mowing. And then we wrap things up with a discussion about online resources for learning more about the Fraze Mowing process and if it might be something to consider for your field(s).
