Abstract/Contents:Briefly discusses a list of "inherited traditions" that school-aged baseball players may possess, focusing on the team motto to "play at any expense." Explains the potential importance for sports field managers to meet the player's expectations, stating that "when spring break and nature calls, if you don't have that field ready, these weekend warriors will make it ready." Continues to discuss lip maintenance, stressing that if lips are not properly maintained, compaction and flooding problems may arise. Mentions that sports field managers should strive to keep lines of communication open between themselves and the baseball coaches playing on the field.
