(The Field Prep Training meeting was well attended by Sunnyvale National and Sunnyvale Southern Managers and Coaches.)
The MANDATORY Field Prep Training Meeting at Jelcick Field, Washington Park held on February 20th from 8:30am to 10:30am was a success. The event was well attended by both Sunnyvale National and Sunnyvale Southern Manager and Coaches. Johnny Hernandez went over the fine points of Field Prep and all Coaches were signed-in and given a hand-out to remind them of the overall policies and procedures.
(Watering is critical to maintaining a good, safe field. Water first, then drag. Here, Johnny reminds all the Coaches to be VERY careful when inserting and removing the hose, since the fitting can be very fragile.)
(Johnny shows us the proper way to rake and that the rake can be used to measure and draw the batters box - 3 feet by 6 feet.)
(For Minors and Majors Coaches playing on Washington 2, lawn mower certification was conducted. Don forget to use the choke, engage the blades (yellow button) and don't forget your eye and ear protection.)
