Historic Corbett Field in Minot ND is getting a "Make-Over". They have been busy today removing the grass which in turn will soon lead to a new artificial surface.
I can't say that I'm a sports or baseball "geek" but I have to say I'm sorry to see the sod go... for several reasons.
1) Baseball should not have a perfect surface, I remember balls taking funny hops many times when I was a boy.
2) I'm going to miss seeing the sprinklers do their work (I live across the street).
3) I'm going to miss Mike, the grounds keeper and all the good visits we had.
It's a new day for a very old ball park. I hope it brings a new excitement to the field and that it helps to bring in bigger crowds in the future.
I tried to talk them into just bringing that sod across the street to my house instead of them hauling it to where ever it was going (so I could repair my ailing yard) but I was not persuasive enough.
I guess I have to grow my own grass.
