Why aren't the fields "turned over" to start the season?

In the early part of the baseball season, the infield is left hard to maintain firmness and minimize rainouts. If the infield is tilled up or “turned over” early in the season, the dirt will hold water longer and cause more rainouts. A hard infield requires only a light drag to allow the water to drain off faster and dry more quickly. The fields are generally “ turned over” in the fall when more intense maintenance is preformed.
