LISTEN: Joey Stevenson, head groundskeeper for the Indianapolis Indians, mowing master:
We’re in the midst of Colts and Pacers season in Indiana, not to mention Hoosiers, Bulldogs and Boilers season. But it might as well be wabbit, duck, silly mongoose or fiddler crab season because in my world, pitchers and catchers start reporting for Spring Training in 52 days (as I write this). So we talk baseball, or specifically, the science of the baseball field, with one of the best in the business.
Joey Stevenson is head groundskeeper for the Indianapolis Indians. He just won the first ever “Best Mowing Pattern” award from the Sports Turf Managers Association, mainly because he doesn’t mow a ridiculous bloody sock into the outfield like some teams do. I can’t wait to see Joey’s handiwork again at Victory Field in a few months.
