www.spor 33 September 2018 // JOHN MASCARO'S PHOTO QUIZ JOHN MASCARO IS PRESIDENT OF TURF-TEC INTERNATIONAL ANSWERS FROM PAGE 17 //////// //////// This baseball and softball complex with six fi elds is located in a city park in Louisville, KY. When the Sports Turf Manager arrived at the facility one morning, he was concerned when he came upon this police crime scene tape. According to the facility's Executive Director, there has never been any sort of police incident at the park before, so he tried to fi nd out what had happened. As it turns out, the police department held a training activity at the park and forgot to remove some of the crime scene tape after the exercise was over. The city's police department does occasionally use one of these fi elds for K9 training, however they always clean up after themselves and their dogs. Although this photograph is not really a turfgrass problem, it is just one example of the many different activities and wear issues that go on in our parks and recreational areas to aid in the betterment of our communities. Photo submitted by Doug Netherton, Executive Director at the St. Matthews Baseball and Softball facility in Louisville.
