This is another post in a periodic series entitled #LifeOnTheRoad. The background is simple. During my travels I encounter many grounds managers/coaches doing great things. Because of this, I have started this series. The goal - expose more grounds managers, coaches, architects, etc to areas of facility and sports turf maintenance that may be implemented to their facility/design.
This past week I was in Ada, Ohio. A quick site visit at Northern Ohio University lead me to a great dugout storage design.
The design incorporated a paved path to the dugout storage where a sliding door was located. The design allowed for a pallet of material to be placed in the dugout. A simple, yet effective design. A piece of the design that was not incorporated but would be nice in the future is another sliding door on the field side. Simply mount a shelf to hold water/Gatorade when in season. When needed the door could then slide open.
