How Deep Should I Nail Board an Infield?

This is a question I get multiple times a month.  The simple answer, no deeper than 1/2 inch for daily maintenance.  After all, as a groundskeeper, you are attempting to maintain the top 1/4-1/2 inch during the playing season.  Please see the photo below.  This photo was taken at Brandon Phillips Field in Cincinnati on Saturday.  Using a quarter as a point of reference, this nail drag was pulled at a depth of 1/2 inch.

Look for additional posts on drags, conditioners, etc later this week.
