Dodgers fans can win home visit by grounds crew
SAN DIEGO -- Want the home landscaping to look as meticulously cared for as Dodger Stadium?

Circle this Sunday on the calendar. One of the newest gifts for Fan Appreciation Day will provide the winner with several garden enhancements provided by members of the Dodger Stadium grounds crew.

Fans will be visited by members of the crew, led by turf manager and grounds director Eric Hansen. Fans can choose three of the following garden enhancements:

• Mow/edge and blow lawn.

• Plant a square of Dodger Stadium grass.

• LA logo stenciled onto lawn.

• Installation of one regulation base.

• Warning track or infield dirt to be spread in designated location.

• Irrigation inspection.

"We all think this is a great idea," Hansen said. "We're kind of excited and looking forward to the visit and see if there's any way we can help."

Hansen said the most valuable offering might be the irrigation inspection.

"We'll check all the zones and make recommendations on the coverage and anything we might see that would help out," he said. "It's an opportunity to visit with fans and let them run questions by us about yard care."
