High School grade leather cover

High School Field Care Fine
NEW POLICY ON POST EVENT FIELD CARE
(All HS Fields) If both teams don't do post event field care or violate other rules/guidelines like hopping fences, tampering w/ locks, not returning light keys, playing on a field that has puddles or is too wet, sweeping mud puddles...
Fine of $75 per team that will be paid directly to that specific high school baseball program
Potential loss of use of any and all HS fields moving forward for your team
Both teams will be fined so please don't tell us that the other team said that they would do it or it was there home field. Your players need to learn how to take care of a field and have pride in the fields that they play on. Please keep in mind that many of these HS complexes have video cameras that you cannot see.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO AFTER EVENTS
This is after all practices and games and is the responsibility of both teams. Home teams don't matter. You also must do this even if there is an event after you as they want to play on a groomed field as well.
Pick up all trash in dugouts and bleacher areas
Rake and fill all holes at bases, mound and home plate area
You should always have a rake with you in case there isn't one out at that field
