The Other Side of the Fence (October 7, 2015)
In this episode we’re thinking about how life is different after groundskeeping and about what drives groundskeepers to seek out a different path within athletic turf management. In a great Bullpen Session we talk about how field use and additional events are changing the work/life balance for today’s groundskeepers. The biggest changes have started in the last 10-15 years and we’re seeing the direct impact with more groundskeepers opting out of the higher demand jobs well before retirement. Which leads directly into the Outta the Park interview where Paul, Tom Burns (Diamond Pro, Former Head Groundskeeper for the Texas Rangers) and Doug Gallant (Former Head Groundskeeper, Cincinnati Reds) talk about their decisions to look at different careers within our industry.
For our last segment, The Diamond DaVincis’ Maintenance Calendar, Paul and Theresa look at how stocking up for the winter now can benefit both you and your budget, what deals you can look for, and what products/tools are best to purchase in the coming month.
