The purpose for Infield Grooming is two-fold. Safety is the foremost goal. As playing surfaces get used, they become uneven, creating tripping hazards for athletes. Adding new infield mix on a yearly basis will help to correct these grade variations. While safety is being addressed, infield grooming also addresses its second purpose, which is improving the field’s appearance. Creating crisp, straight lines on turf edges also beautifies playing surfaces, providing definition between turf and infield areas.
