AquaSmart Pro for Sports Field Issues

Chris Sinacori, Ewing Sports Fields Specialist and former MLB player and pitching coach, shows how adding AquaSmart Pro to a regular maintenance routine combats dry spots, dust, compaction and moisture issues on baseball and softball fields.

Fight Compaction

Compaction prevents water, air and nutrients from effectively penetrating soil to reach plant root zones. This creates an unhealthy environment for plant growth, reduces overall vigor and can result in player injury. With proper aeration, the use of soil conditioners and amendments can help increase pore space between soil particles to:

  • Improve soil structure and root penetrationid acerbic
  • Increase water and nutrient movement
  • Minimize the appearance of standing water or puddles
  • Reduce the risk of player injury

Frequently Asked Questions


    What is considered an infield mix?

    Soil consists of clay, sand and silt. An infield mix is a combination of these soil types and may also contain additional additives. Most infield mixes are 50 to 80 percent sand and 20 to 50 percent clay/silt.

    Your geographical location and the amount of maintenance your schedule allows for are the main things to take into consideration when selecting an infield mix. Some percentage combinations will perform better in specific temperature ranges, and some require more upkeep than others. Talk to your local Ewing representative who can help you determine what kind of infield mix is right for your project.


    What is an easy way for me to figure out what kind of infield mix I am currently using?

    For an exact answer, take a sample of your current soil in to a lab and have a soil particle test done. This test can give you particle sizing and exact percentages of the sand, silt and clay in your current infield mix. Contact a Ewing Sports Fields specialist for more information.

    For a rough estimation of the soil types in your infield mix, try the jar test. Simply fill a glass jar ¾ full with your current infield mix, and then fill the jar the rest of the way with water. Give the jar a good shake and then set it down and watch. The sand, silt and clay will separate out, and you will be able to get a rough estimate of how much of each soil type is in your current infield mix.


    How can a higher clay percentage help my infield?

    A higher clay percentage can help your infield drain properly. When you have a higher percentage of clay in your infield mix, it acts like your bathtub and holds the water in one place until it gets to field capacity. At that point, the infield will start to drain off laterally. Results may vary depending on your region.


    Why is nail dragging important?

    Many people in this industry screen drag, but not enough people nail drag. There is an important difference between the two. When screen dragging, you are pulling material and filling voids in the soil that are left by cleats, but not entirely eliminating them.

    When nail dragging, you eliminate those holes entirely by scarfing a half-inch to three-fourths inch down into the profile (scarfing refers to the depth your nail reaches). By taking this extra step, you will have a better chance of reducing the amount of bad hops that come as a result from a ball hitting a cleat mark that was filled with loose material from a screen drag rather than eliminated with a nail drag.


    How often should I nail drag?

    This answer depends on the amount of playtime your infield receives. You should be nail dragging a minimum of once a week. Make sure to get some good moisture in the profile before you nail drag so that the material will break up to eliminate spike marks.


    If the mound I’m working with needs renovated, should I keep the old one or start fresh?

    If possible, keep the old one! It is much easier to renovate a mound where the dirt has settled for a year because the soil will be more compact. If you start from the bottom up you will need to allow some time for the base to settle before adding blocks or a bagged clay product.


    How many blocks does it take to renovate a mound?

    It takes around 184 blocks to do either an “I” shape or a triangle shape.


    How many blocks does it take to create both a mound and plate?

    It will take one pallet of blocks (typically 304 blocks total). This will enable you to create the mound, batters boxes and catchers box.


    Why do I have to use bag clay with bricks?

    It is important to use the same clay that the unfired blocks are made of to get the proper binding necessary for a stable mound or plate area. In most cases, using different clay from what the unfired blocks are made of will create pancaking. Pancaking is when two non-conforming clays do not adhere to each other. This causes large chunks of your mound or plate area to break loose as time goes on.
