Tigers Invest in Memorial Field

For the 12 year in a row, the Tigers have taken on major maintenance projects for Memorial Field. Each year the Tigers work to improve the field by adding leveling dirt and sand and by spreading rye seed in winter so we will have a playing surface for the spring.

Ravi, Donovan and Liam

Steve Swatzyna used his mower and the team spreader to drop the seed. The entire process took about 3 hours. The pitch will be beautiful this spring.

Seeding is a major timing problem since we really cannot do much seeding at the optimal time (September/October) due to the band use of the pitch. We were a little later than normal this season but finally got the seed down yesterday. Many thanks for Ravi, Liam and Donovan who moved the seed to the pitch from the locker room on a 30 degree day.

The Tigers remove debris from the field during practices. Regularly we remove bottles, cans, papers and now we find masks on the field on a regular basis. We take pride in our playing surface and take good care of it for all to use.
