What kind of grass and what variety?
For those of you all who have asked questions, I am not sure of the kind of bluegrass that was originally on the field when I got here. however, we are using Hogan seed's "Hogan's Alley KY Bluegrass Blend" the exact % of which I will check on before I post.
The soil makeup is a variety of sand and loam, but it's fairly inconsistent, being a lot more clay based down the left field line, and much more sand-heavy down in right field. When the field was built, some of the native soil was mixed with the trucked-in composition. What I've found is soil samples vary in location and it's been a hard thing to evenly fertilize because part of the field reacts differently than others.
The infield is a clay based surface. I mixed in 22 tons of calcined clay last winter and it has become a bit too soupy since. I plan on adding 25-50 tons of alabama red clay within the year. The conditioner is Mule Mix, colored Red.
here are a couple more pics!
I'll be happy to answer any more specific questions.

Hey Coach in the second picture of your last set of pictures how do you stripe like that?
Looks really nice guys. That picture with the snow is pretty cool.
Nice fields... especially like the corn one. How do you cut corn with a mower? Must be complicated eh?
