Q: What kind of soil is used in the stadium, and where does it come from?
A: The growing media for the playing surface is a USGA-specification golf-green construction — 10 inches of root-zone sand over four inches of drainage gravel. Drain lines are placed every 20 feet below the gravel layer. All sand and gravel used in the field is native to Texas. The infield soils and packing clays are shipped in from Tennessee. The soil for the warning track is delivered from Phoenix.
