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.

Meet the Hosts

Paul and Theresa reminisce about their past trips to the national STMA (Sports Turf Managers Association) meetings and talk with Kim Heck (CEO, STMA). There’s a lot going on at the annual conference and exhibition (Jan 9-22, 2016 in San Diego). If you’ve been before you can relate and may even remember some of the things we talk about. If you’ve never been think of this as a virtual tour. Paul and Theresa chose to do this subject themselves and are not being sponsored by the STMA – they really do love going to the national and their local STMA meetings for networking, learning and talking turf like the nerds they are.

STMA-palooza (December 17, 2015)

This edition of the podcast is a little different, it’s more of a special subject cast than we usually do. All our segments are about the national STMA (Sports Turf Managers Association) Conference and Exhibition (this year it’s being held between Jan 9-22, 2016 in San Diego). Paul and Theresa are big fans of any opportunity to geek out over turf with fellow sports turf managers and this is the biggest opportunity every year. Bonus, the STMA provides a great venue in which to network and learn about all sorts of subjects as well. In our Outta the Park interview we’re talking to Kim Heck (CEO, STMA) about all the work she and the STMA office put in to the Conference and other activities as well as all the fun events they have planned for this year in San Diego. Paul and Theresa also talk about some past show shenanigans, local STMA programs and other turf-trade-show business.
