As you're sprucing up your lawn this spring, baseball grounds crews are getting their turf in tiptop shape. Don't miss these great photos, fun facts and insider tips from some of the country's most popular baseball parks and stadiums.
Q: What kind of soil is used in the ballpark, and where does it come from?
A: The turf grows in 12 inches of Waupaca Sand sourced from within Wisconsin. The infield mix is four inches of Dura Edge Custom Pro infield mix from Natural Sand Company. The clay material is mined near Slippery Rock, Penn., then shipped to locations around the country to be blended with the exact amount of sand that the groundskeeper specifies. Miller Park's current mix was installed in fall 2012 and consists of 55 percent sand, 20 percent silt and 25 percent clay. The mix was blended and installed by Bush Sports Turf of Milan, Ill. The warning track is crushed lava rock, mined near Antonito, Colo.
