Abstract/Contents:Discusses how to rid athletic fields of lips on the turf, suggesting that its cause "all depends on maintenance practices." Recommends "[adding] material to soak up extra water and dry out the puddle, but afterwards remove all that extra stuff." Explains the possible necessity to control the effect of wind on the field, stating that it may spread the topdressing onto the whole field. Suggests using "sweeping brooms with really stiff bristles and broom from six to eight inches in the grass back towards the skin all the way around the field including the inside edges, base paths, and the mound and plate grass edges," adding additional maintenance practices.
