When it comes to field maintenance, I feel fairly competent. However, I'm smart enough to know what I don't know. Here's the deal:
The local Girls Inc. is trying to rescue an old field and make it into a T-ball field. There is already fencing set up, but the the infield grass has completely grown to the same level as the outfield.
My Mom is the person trying to make this happen and is leaning on me to help out with some of the logistics.
My question(s) to every one is, where should I start? Obviously we'll have to get a bobcat and skim the grass off the infield, then level it out, then lay out the dirt, and then roll that. What Else am I missing? What kind of dirt do you recommend? Keep in mind that this is just for T-ball so it doesn't need to be Turface MVP. Budgeting is an issues, so the dirt can't be that expensive. We need something cheap but I'd like to stay away from 100% sand.
As you can tell, I'm not the best choice for the job. My forte is coaching baseball, not grounds crew for T-bal;. However, lack of options have landed this responsibility in my lap.
Thanks for any help or suggestions you can provide!
