Nabozny and Sherry, the only two female head groundskeepers in major league baseball, tend to the pristine Kentucky bluegrass of Detroit's Comerica Park and Baltimore's Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Both women started their journey to the big leagues as teenagers, when they discovered their passion for working with plants and grass.

Nabozny grew up a Tigers fan in Brighton, Mich., and attended games at Tiger Stadium as a young girl with her father, who ran a lawn care company.
