Tips for Summertime Baseball Field Maintenance

July 19, 2023

Summer is a great time for baseball, but it can also be tough on baseball fields. The heat, sun, and increased use can take a toll on the field’s surface, making it important to take steps to maintain it properly.


Here are some tips for summertime baseball field maintenance:

Water regularly: 
  • The most important thing you can do to maintain a baseball field in the summer is to water it regularly. The amount of water you need to use will vary depending on the type of turfgrass, the amount of sun exposure, and the temperature. However, a good rule of thumb is to water the field deeply two to three times per week.
Mow regularly: 
  • Mowing the field regularly helps to keep the turfgrass healthy and prevents weeds from taking over.
  • Mow the field at a height of 2 to 2.5 inches.
  • The frequency of mowing will vary depending on the type of turfgrass, the amount of sun exposure, and the amount of use the field receives. 
  • However, a good rule of thumb is to mow the field once a week during the summer. A sharp mower will make a cleaner cut and will help to prevent the turfgrass from becoming stressed. Mowing in the early morning or evening will help to prevent the turfgrass from drying out. Mowing when the grass is wet can damage the turfgrass and make it more susceptible to disease.
Fertilize the field: 
  • Fertilizing the field helps to keep the turfgrass healthy and strong. Fertilize the field in the spring and fall, following the directions on the fertilizer label.
Aerate the field: 
  • Aerating the field helps to improve drainage and allows air and water to reach the roots of the turfgrass. Aerate the field once a year, in the fall or spring.
Repair any damage :
  • If the field is damaged, such as by a foul ball or a player sliding, repair the damage as soon as possible. This will help to prevent the damage from getting worse.
Keep the field clean: 
  • Keep the field clean of debris, such as trash, leaves, and dirt. This will help to prevent the spread of diseases and pests.
