Historical and horticultural...
« on: October 04, 2019, 09:33:05 pm »
When I look at video of old World Series from the '40s through at least the '60s I notice how poor the field conditions are. In front of the plate it is often all hard pan and there are dead spots in the outfield. After a full season of wear, the groundskeepers of the day were hard pressed to provide a playable surface.

Contrast that to today's postseason with virtually perfect playing surfaces regardless of climate or number of games played.

Historically, baseball's horticulture has never been better.
He breezed him, one more time!

I think George Toma is the man most responsible for why fields are maintained so well today.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit
