Turf Day

Yesterday was Turf Day, the day the grow blanket was removed from the turf at Great American Ball Park.

By using a “grow blanket,” the temperature of the soil and grass is raised while under the blanket.  This fools the grass into thinking it’s later in the springtime.

The grow blanket was installed in mid-February and was on for about three weeks.

Now, I’ll let you enjoy the pictures.  I can’t believe how green the grass is.
