University of Kentucky - Early Spring Baseball Can Bring Challenges

Early spring baseball in the North can bring challenges in February and March.  I made a quick visit to Lexington, KY yesterday.  The grounds crew was prepping for today's game Tennessee Tech.  What I did not expect was a snow removal process to prep for today's game!  Lexington received approximately 4 inches of snow on Sunday night/Monday morning, and with UK off to the best start in college baseball, the games must go on.  

Here are a few photos from yesterday.  

Marcus Dean and his crew were doing an outstanding job pushing the snow off the grass with tarp drums attached to tractors to the outfield wall.  Then, the snow was loaded into gators and taken to the parking lot.
