Marc Giauque reportingThis week of turbulent weather may be a good reminder that it's spring in Utah. But a lot of people are saying that doesn't mean they have to like it.

A case in point: At Franklin-Covey Field, the grass is green and growing. "We've mowed it probably at least six times," said head groundskeeper Ryan Kaspitzke.

But he says there have been some seasonal challenges, like keeping people off the grass when it's frosty, or constantly tarping then untarping the infield.

"Mother Nature throws you a curve ball. We can't control it, so we just have to deal with it, do the work we can and get ahead of the game," he said.

Kaspitzke says like a lot of people, he and his crew are ready for summer. But he also knows in a few weeks, some will be thinking fondly of these cooler days.
