There is this stuff called weedmaster that should take care of the weeds in the infield. I know you cant buy it at home depot, you will have to go to a place like Lesco to find it

If its used enough, and you maintain and screen the field regularly, you shouldn't have much weed growth, if any. I've never had to use a spray so I can't really be of help. Sorry :(

Increase traffic.

Infields are cheap to maintain because you can pull a drag over it on a regular basis and save a lot on herbicide.

Please educate my feeble mind...

By regularly "dragging" it the weeds are prevented? What is used for the drag material?

This will help me on my resume for Miller Park when I retire.

Thanks

You guys are talking about the dirt part of the infield...

Never mind:)

Your slipping! ;)

I find myself doing that a lot, and either answering my own question or quickly realizing how dump the words I posted where!

You outsmarted yourself on that one :)!

If you have no idea on what type of non-selective herbicide to use
it is obvious you are not a certified pesticide applicator and have no business applying pesticides w/o any insurance where children are
playing baseball.

you are right. that is why my plan did not include spraying. however if i knew of something that worked really well at least i could hire some one to spray. also i am working on the licence
