Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton)

The grounds crew at NYSEG stadium has stayed busy over the past few weeks doing what they can on the field.
But there's not a whole lot to be done.
With snow still on the ground, and possibly more on the way, the crew is doing whatever they can to get things in playing shape.

Head groundskeeper EJ Folli says, " We've got all the tedious work done, hanging pads, fixing screens, we rebuilt the warning track, stuff like that. Now we're getting into the nitty-gritty, rebuilding the infield, home plate, pitchers mound. Today we're doing the bullpens. We have a decent day today it's 40 degrees, but it's better than nothing."

Bmets GM Jim Weed gave Folli and his crew until Monday to get the field ready, barring any major weather issues.

The B-Mets open the season on a 7 game road trip, starting at Akron.
The first home game is April 14th against New Hampshire.
