Abstract/Contents:Discusses the grading of athletic field surfaces from a field contractor's perspective. Notes that "it is perceived that athletic fields should be uniform and safe. Reasonable expectations of fields include 100% turf coverage, smooth grading contours (i.e. [that is] no 'pot holes'), and, of course, good drainage." Emphasizes grading as a potentially necessary standard toward achieving improved playing conditions on athletic fields, suggesting grading measurements for football and baseball fields. Concludes that "strong technical specifications about procedures, products, materials, and machine control [controlled] laser grading" might make for a successful project.
