    i just picked up 8 baseball fields at a JR sports compound and was wondering what a good height would be to mow them at.. i normally mow all my yards at 3.25 to 3.50 would that work or should i go lower?

    it depends on how often you are mowing. rule of thumb is never mow more than 1/3 the green leaf. The leagues typically like mowing between 2" and 2.5 inches which in my area means mowing twice per week.
