Congratulations to Kyle Calhoon, Sports Turf Manager at the Hartford Yard Goats (Hartford, Conn.), for being selected as the sixth annual “Mowing Patterns Contest” winner.

Calhoon was selected via a Facebook voting contest from Oct. 22 to Nov. 23 for his intricate design at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, home to the Hartford Yard Goats (Double-A, Colorado Rockies).

With expansive previous experience in Major League Baseball (Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees) and the National Football League, he most recently held the position of Grounds Manager for the San Francisco 49ers before joining the Hartford Yard Goats in 2016. In 2017 and 2018, he received the Diamond Pro Eastern League Sports Field Manager of the Year award. Calhoon graduated from Penn State University with a certificate of Turfgrass Management.
