Abstract/Contents:Discusses sports turf management, suggesting that knowledge comes with experience. States that "a primary challenge to every sports field manager is to use the experience and understanding gained over time to manage his infields in a 'proactive' rather than 'reactive' manner." Details potential field problems, including "poor design, poor construction...[and] years of improper maintenance." Provides examples of how "proactive" and "reactive" sports field managers might react to poor field conditions.
