What is the procedure for getting the baseball/softball fields playable after rain?

If the infields are wet, Park District staff work on the fields early in the morning by removing water in the low spots and allowing the fields to dry naturally. In the afternoon, staff will spread Turface® to dry dirt and get as many fields playable as soon as possible. Some fields naturally dry more quickly than others. There is no priority to which fields get worked on first. All fields are treated the same. This is why it is important for the designated SAA person to have good communication with the Park District in regard to schedules. If a field is not being used, the park staff can then concentrate on fields that are being used and not waste time working on unscheduled fields.
