The New England Sports Turf Managers Association (NESTMA) recently held its Fall Turf Day. It was a picture-perfect day for the 100-plus NESTMA members who attended the event at Longs Athletic Complex in Framingham, Mass.
The guest speaker, Patrick “Irish” Coakley, CSFM, covered all the bases for safe and playable infields. Coakley’s “back to the basics” approach gave sports field managers and their crews practical techniques they can use right away at their own facilities. A highlight of the day was getting out on the infield to put what everyone learned in the classroom to work. It was a valuable, hands-on experience for all.
