BASEBALL FIELD TURFGRASSES

The number one thing to check on with a Baseball field is the drainage.  Most fields have poor drainage caused by incorrectly installed or non-working drainage tiles AND/OR a poorly designed flow to allow for correct drainage.  These aspects must be corrected in order to allow for turfgrasses to grow correctly. 

WARM SEASON AREAS

Bermudagrass is the DOMINATE choice for Baseball due to Bermuda's excellent turf quality and the ability to be mowed low for faster Athletic usage speeds... Both improved seeded and hybrid varieties are used.

TRANSITIONAL & COOL SEASON AREAS

A mix of 50% Kentucky Bluegrass and 50% Perennial Ryegrass is the DOMINATE & BEST choice. 

Its aggressive growth and recuperative abilities (rhizomes) make it the # 1 choice - The main reason for Bluegrass & Ryegrass is the need for a grass that can be maintained at 1 inch height.

Bluegrass is also considered a safer playing surface because of the cushioning effects of its thatch layer.  Bluegrass is though slow  to fully establish, taking generally 1 year to mature.  You can generally seed in spring with use beginning in the fall.   Perennial Ryegrass is included in the mixtures of Bluegrass for field use.  Maintenance is usually around 1-2 inches with 2 inches preferable.  It does have one big benefit and that is that the rhizomes repair damaged turf over time without re-seeding.

In the mid and lower transitional zone areas,  Tall Fescues and Bermudas are both used because of drought / heat problems with using KBG and Ryegrasses.  There really is NOT a perfect choice for this area.  Tall Fescue requires a 2" height for adequate maintenance and also is a bunch type requiring high rates of re-seeding to avoid and repair any damaged areas - This makes using Tall Fescue a difficult choice as a dwarf variety must be used and even then they are stressed at 1" heights.

Bermudagrasses are also used for baseball in the transition areas.  Bermudas are impacted by their off color during winter dormancy and the higher risk of plant loss due to winter kill from low temperatures.  Bermudagrass fields must also be overseeded each fall with Ryegrasses (during a break in schedule) to avoid playing on dormant / brown fields in the fall.  Additional re-seeding of ryegrass as the season progresses is usually required.
