There are more than 2,000 sports fields in Mississippi, the majority being used for football, baseball, softball, and soccer. Cities and communities throughout the state are constructing new or improving existing sports complexes to meet the demand for safe recreational activities. This publication provides coaches, groundskeepers, league employees, and concerned citizens with the basics of caring for natural turfgrass in its most visible and sometimes most stressed scenario.
