A group of students in HCS 3370: Sports Turf Management renovated the Upper Arlington High School baseball field on Wednesday, September 20, 2017. The project, developed by course instructor Pam Sherratt, gives students an opportunity for hands-on experience in maintenance and repair techniques vital to their future careers in turfgrass science and sports field management. The students worked with turfgrass expert, Matt Williams (OARDC Research Operations), to measure the baseball field, repair and finish the pitcher’s mound. This is the eleventh year of this hands-on project.
