re: Alex Box getting artificial turf in foul territory(Posted by Mulerider on 12/2/13 at 8:43 pm to Tiger in NY)
It is currently artificial just around the plate but it will be artificial from foul pole to foul pole on completion. With BP, fungos and the suites it has been very difficult for the grounds crew to keep the grass dense enough in these areas. In theory it is a good plan I'm interested to see how it actually looks once completed.

Geosurfaces out of Baton Rouge. At least that is what was on the shirts and equipment for the guys I saw out there today. This is the same company that replaces the natural grass at Tiger Stadium after the Bayou Country show every year. LSU did a similar project at Tiger Park last year for softball before the season on the area behind home plate and it looked so good most people didn't notice it was artificial.
