My infield dirt has, over time, become much lower than the infield grass. I'm referring to the edge where the dirt meets the grass on the infield side (closest to home-not the back edge where it meets the outfield grass). At some points it drops as much as 3". The cause is not a "lip" in the grass edge the infield is relatively flat. I suspect the dirt has eroded to the back edge with water/rain drainage towards the outfield, but I am not sure.
An example to clarify what the problem is: Imagine you're playing third and the batter hits a slow roller. You charge the ball, but stump your toe and fall on your face. Looking back you realize you have tripped over the grass edge of the infield.
This could easily happen.
Anyone dealt with a problem like this? Any relatively easy remedies?
