    I have a project ahead where the client wants me to spruce up their baseball field. The dirt area of the field, base line pitcher mounds etc is completly overgrown with grass. I can still see the outline of the dirt, but is pretty well covered. What would be the most effiecient way to remove the grass? Heavy dose of grass/weed killer? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Depending on how thick the coverage of grass is, the method to remove it could widely vary. Grass in an infield to any extent is not desired, so it needs to be completely removed,not sprayed. If it was a total renovation, I'd use a tracked skid steer to recut the infield, and bring in all new base and infield mix. The pitcher's mound would be best dealt with manually to preserve the integrity of the mound, unless it's too far gone to redo.
