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.

Make it New Again (April 6, 2016)

How’s your field playing these days? Has it seen better days? Has it seen better days a few years ago? This is a great episode for any field manager considering any sort of renovation or construction project. For large projects we’re talking with Steve Bush, Owner of Bush Turf construction company about what we should be looking for before hiring a crew. He has a few pointers on tackling smaller projects and great insider knowledge on getting the best field grade.

And, whether your thinking about a large or small project, if you’re also needing a way to help pay for the work we have a great interview with Mike Gigliotti (Owner, FixAField.com) who has started up a new crowdfunding site geared only towards sports field projects.
