Infield Mix Drainage - DO NOT USE GRAVEL/STONE!

At multi-field complexes, drainage along the backstops can be challenging due to elevations of the press box building and bleacher areas of a facility.  There are many ways to design/drain the facility.  One way I would not recommend is using a stone "french" drain as is shown in the photo below:

This drain will move water.  The problem?  The stone will migrate into the infield.  Stone is already present on this infield before the facility hosted its first game.
