Walt Harper and Ty Harper like to get dirty on the Corona del Mar High baseball field. Walt doesn't play baseball. Ty last played for the Sea Kings 13 years ago. That hasn't stopped the father and son from their labor of love: maintaining the CdM field. These groundskeepers deserve an episode on the "Dirty Jobs" show. Thanks to the tandem, the Sea Kings have a home-field advantage. They tend to win more often than they lose at home. The field is also a winner. CdM earned the Field of the Year in the western region by the National High School Baseball Coaches Assn., Coach John Emme said.
