Abstract/Contents:Relates a presentation given by Joe Torre in 1987 that discusses the importance of turf managers and good turf management of baseball fields. Torre describes three incidents during professional baseball games when the condition of the field greatly influenced the outcome of the game. Torre states that "recognition for those who maintain and care for baseball fields is long overdue." He also states that "the Sports Turf Mangers Association is going to be the driving force behind the improvement and maintenance of field surfaces throughout the country."
