Thoroughly wet the lined areas AFTER you have finished chalking. Fill your hopper as close to the area you will be chalking as possible. Wet the areas you will be chalking FIRST before you begin chalking. Which float drag transports the least amount of infield material?1 steel mat drag cocoa mat drag iron bow steel combo drag The entire foul line should be completely in foul territory.1 True FalseWhich weather event plays the biggest role in transporting infield soil from the infield skin to the grass edges forming lips?1 Light snow Bright sunshine Moderate to heavy rain Strong winds Bridging occurs in the hopper of a chalker when the chalk has absorbed too much oxygen and expands, creating an overflow of chalk.1 True FalseWhen tamping down new clay added for repair, remember to tamp _______ .1 in the middle first, working your way outward. around the outside edges first, working your way inward. in a rhythmic pattern. in a figure-eight pattern. A “lip” is a bump in the batter’s box that results from players pushing material toward the back of the batter’s box.1 True FalseAt 1st and 3rd base, the foul edge of the foul line should line up with:1 the side of the base facing 2nd base. the side of the base facing foul territory. the side of the base facing home plate. the absolute center of the base. Bulk paint sprayers should __________ at the end of each work day.1 have the supply lines, filters, and supply tank emptied and flushed with clean water be refilled with freshly diluted field marking paint have the supply tank drained have the agitators running for at least 4 hours if there is still paint in the supply tank If watering right before a day game, be sure to wet down the infield grass to make sure it doesn’t get too dry during the game.1 True FalseIn order to keep an infield skin nice and smooth for maximum playability, you should nail drag or float drag in one direction only.1 True FalseWhen there are no fortification materials used on the mound or home plate (clay fortification or pitcher’s / batter’s mats), the best thing to do is water the wear holes and pull the existing infield material back into the wear holes, tamp, and water again to help the area to solidify.1 True FalseTo effectively repair clay on the pitching mound or home plate area, it is very important to remove all loose material and debris from the wear holes before proceeding with installing replacement clay.1 True FalseWhen repairing a shallow wear hole in the clay around of the pitching mound or home plate, it is important to _________ in order to successfully bond the new and old clay together.1 scarify or deeply scratch the wear area with a sharpened iron rake push the old, dug out clay back into the wear hole flood the wear hole with water excavate the hole deeper When measuring field dimensions, it is best to use a _______ tape measure to ensure accurate measurements.1 fiberglass nylon-coated steel plastic wood When repairing a wear hole in the pitching mound or home plate area, it is important to use _______ in order to ensure effective binding to the existing clay.1 the spoils and debris that was swept out of the wear holes infield topdressing fresh dry clay premoistened clay The more moisture you can keep in your infield skin without getting sloppy:1 the less wear you will see in the skin in the skin, along with truer hops and better traction. the less traction players will have when running changing direction. the more weeds you will see come up in your infield skin. the more bad hops you will see. Hand dragging skinned areas along the turf edge can help minimize “lip buildup”.1 True False“Back raking” is a technique used after rainfall for scarifying your infield skin to help it dry more quickly.1 True FalseWhich float drag can still effectively smooth a damp infield?1 steel mat drag cocoa mat drag both neither What must be done to existing clay in wear holes to allow the new clay to adhere to the existing clay?1 Wet the bottom and sides of the hole with water to make the clay tacky. Blend some bagged cement powder in with the soil. Excavate the holes as deep as possible. Apply a soil adhesive to the bottom and sides of the wear hole. The dragging pattern that helps build or maintain surface grade on a totally skinned infield is the:1 figure eight drag pattern. overlapping ovals drag pattern. outward swirl drag pattern. inward swirl drag pattern. Which float drag will perform the best for breaking up small soil chunks on your infield skin?1 Cocoa Mat Drag Steel Mat Drag Both Neither What type of tamp should you use to get the most concentrated packing power?1 A tamp with a large tamping plate (10x10). A short-handle tamp. A tamp with a small tamping plate (8x8). A long-handle tamp.
