Worst grass fields?

Post by greygoose » Sat Dec 08, 2018 3:09 pm

With talks of grass vs turf and so many teams going to the turf, got me to thinking how many other teams need to look into it or need to make some changes to their field?? I know Piketon tried to resod their field earlier in the year but waiting to long and it didn't work out for them this year but should be fine going into next year. Prior to Waverly getting the new turf the field was downright awful and dangerous in the rain especially. Eastern Pike was another grass field I seen this year that needs a lot of attention. Minford was another one but looks like they're in the works for raising money on turf field. Another program that has had success recently but I'm not sure the shape of the field is Unioto. Just curious if there's any other grass fields out there that is in need of an overhaul or would be a good candidate for turf??

Gallia actually has grass. Fairland is a mud pit in between 10 yard patches of grass

Memorial Field was a bit better this year, but typically 10 yard line to 10 yard line is mud by week 4-6 depending on the year and weather throughout.

I remember my old Uncle Ace Rutter used to be talking with my cousin Buford T Rutter and they would always say, "Hey if there is grass on the field, play ball!"

I dont remember them ever talking about who had the worst field they ever played on but maybe they could give some insight if they see this.

Of the fields I've played on or seen. Memorial Field is by far the worst.
