Drew Miller is joined by DuraEdge rep for our last drop from the special edition Groundskeeper Chat X  TigerTurfTalk collaboration. Patrick Coakley, fondly known as "Irish" in the sports turf industry, comes to the chat with over 20 plus years of experience in the minor leagues and now his perspective from the other side of the dirt.

Here's what you'll hear in this week's Groundskeeper Chat:

  • How we can promote our industry to those outside of the sports turf world 
  • Current challenges facing our industry today 
  • Patrick talks about his love from dirt which started during his minor league days 
  • New tech we can expect from the dirt side of the industry 
  • Lastly, how to have parents buy into our priority of player safety and playability 

A little bit more about our guest:

Irish Coakley joined the DuraEdge team after 20 plus years as a head groundskeeper in the minor leagues. He brings his love for baseball and dirt to help customers revitalize or rebuild their fields in the Mid Atlantic region of the United States.
