WSJDigitalNetwork video: Stripe Your Lawn Like the Major Leagues.

John Deere video: How to Pattern Mow Your Lawn. May 4, 2011.
I was planning on running a lot of my photos from Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, where for most of the time between 1992-2003, I had a mini-season ticket plan and probably attended over 20 ballgames a year, despite living in Arlington County.
Unfortunately, for my purposes today, most of the photos are of my friends and the ballpark itself, and the ones showing the grass parts of the field weren't at the right angle so that you could see the patterns in the outfield, hence my use of these photos from photobucket.
Scott's Lawn Care, who is the official Lawn Care company of MLB, and which actually sells the same grass seed mix as used at five MLB ballparks -Cardinals, Cubs, Phillies, Red Sox and Reds- has a number of clever examples of various designs that you can check out on their website and consider for your own lawn
