We normally just hover over the wet areas/puddles in the league helicopter, that normally dries them out pretty quickly! B)

Sorry, couldn't resist!

Truth be told, we have used airboats, plenty of them around, I even owned one for several years.

I've also seen leagues use several leaf blowers.

If I could get one of the jet engines Grumman used to test nearby, I'm sure we could dry off the fields real fast.

We have tried siphons on pumps before but they either don't get off much water, or they clog.

Dig a hole at a low spot. Put the pump in but don't let it touch down.
