Abstract/Contents:Presents a question and answer regarding the conversion of a baseball diamond's infield from dirt to turf. Notes that "turfgrass infields, while appropriate for higher-maintenance facilities, often develop lips rather quickly due to mismanagement, a lack of management, or both." Suggests maintenance techniques for the possible prevention of lip development, highlighting "the elimination of high and low spots through routine grooming."
