Field Preparation and Maintenance

How do we keep our fields looking so nice through out the course of a season? It's simple - beginning with the 2010 season, Benicia Little League added the position of Field Prep to all of our teams staff roles.

Each team may allow two people to earn Full Season Credit toward our required volunteer hours, and those folks are the ones who perform all the required setup and maintenance before and after games.

Give them a wave and a thank you when you see them out there keep the fields in spectacular shape for our players.
