John Deere Sports Turf Stories: Charlotte Knights


I think the the three of the things that
set this field apart from other fields in general obviously the setting, where
we are located, in uptown Charlotte, Center City here. This was a long-time coming
for the City of Charlotte, this ballpark. It is really a crown jewel of
uptown. So the award and the recognition is a way to show that the hard work paid
off but it’s really more of a testament to the hours the work that our crew does
in particular my full-time assistant who’s on staff and it’s a true testament
to the support that we get from our front office here in Charlotte
dirt is often overlooked I feel like especially from the people who are
sitting in the stands 70% the game takes place on dirt that’s where you kind of
that’s where you make your name for yourself in this business is from how
you maintain your dirt there’s rarely a week that goes by
during the season that I don’t see Rick Rick is uh he has a strong turf
background he was the golf course superintendent prior to prior to joining
Greenville turf contractor so you know the thing that’s great is when Rick
comes out he’s a he’s actually an extra set of turf eyes I think we have a great
customer vendor relationship with Matt Matt has Matt’s able to you know pretty
much communicate his his issues his concerns to us in a direct manner which
allows us to be able to be able to make sure that we’re on time with helping him
and get him given the right kind of help 1208 is bright actually my favorite
piece of equipment that we brought in from a from a baseball standpoint it is
it’s just it’s phenomenal it’s a simple machine it’s the turning radius on it is
outstanding you can turn it on a dime so the 70-200 a is our it is our staple
point and our fleet from a mowing standpoint as I said it’s an it’s a new
set up to me I’ve been super impressed with if the quality of cut is second to
none in this industry you have to have passion for what you do if you don’t
you’re not going to make it matt has so much passion for the product that we put
out day in and day out it makes me want to be you know makes me want to do
better makes me want to work harder hey saying my staff because I think we
are a team our team here they truly enjoy what they do and they’re willing
to put forth two hours they’re willing to anything that we need any any weather
situation that group of men and women are what makes this place go round
