Soon, the stadium will be filled with fans and the field will look perfect as the boys of summer work hard on their way to a pennant.

 

So the next time you're at Yankee Stadium or are watching the game on TV, you'll know Danny and his crew of 5 are to thank for keeping this legendary field looking great!

Let's hear it for the crew!
