Fernandez and Lopas will both cover the importance of field safety and performance, as well as, share insider stories from the softball and baseball worlds.“Whether attendees maintain their own field, manage a crew, coach or even design fields, this is a great opportunity to learn how to get the best performance out of the field — or at least understand what to look for,” said Jon Hubbs, President of Stabilizer Solutions, Inc. “Stabilizer Solutions is happy to help Barney bring together experts and leading vendors to showcase the latest in professional groundskeeping technology and innovation.” Admission is free, and includes a complimentary lunch and raffle prizes.
