Moeller Field

 

When the infields are soft after rain and people play/practice on them, the end results are footprints (cleat marks). Speaking from my experience at Moeller, these footprints are exceptionally difficult to repair. When the slag (infield material) dries, it hardens, and so do the footprints. The drag field maintainer can only spread out a thin top layer of slag. It has often taken weeks to finally fill in all the cleat mark damage. Now that the regular season is underway, GCYAA contracts out field maintenance at Moeller Fields (and two diamonds at City Park). The contract infield workers are paid to basically prep the fields for game play, not spend hours on the infield repairing unnecessary damage. As for City Park diamonds, Dan Plamondon, Garden City Parks and Rec Director, maintains them. He is feeling the same pain we at GCYAA feel when the fields look like this. Please understand when Dave (GCYAA baseball/softball Commissioner) and Dan Plamondon cancel games for the day, that also means DO NOT play or practice on the fields.
