Muckdogs groundskeeper already busy getting field ready for 2019
Last year, the Batavia Muckdogs hired Cooper Thomas, trained in Australia, as new head groundskeeper. But visa issues delayed his arrival in Batavia, so he didn't get to work on the field the two months before the season that is ideal for getting it ready for professional ballplayers.
This year, he's back, and he's here early. He said both the players and the fans will be pleased with the field in 2019.
