Yesterday brand new sod was put down on the infield of Great American Ball Park. Multiple flatbed trucks brought in the new grass in giant rolls, see below.
“When we had the TallStacks Riverboat Convention on the Ohio River in 2006, the Budweiser Clydesdales were stabled inside the tunnel, between the GABP Command Center and centerfield entrance.
Visitors downtown for the convention were allowed to walk in and walk through a roped off area to see the horses and the wagons.
At the same time that was going on… the entire field from left field to right field and into the infield – removed, and new turf put down.
It only took one morning, about 8 am – 11 am to remove ALL the turf and took a little more than that the next day to put down new turf.”
