Pet peeve of mine.  Turf is natural grass.  It seems that people are calling artificial grass "turf" where a more correct name would be "artificial turf".  If you call it "artificial turf" then there would be no confusion but calling it turf could be misleading.  BTW, there are places that grow grass and they are called Turf Farms.


When in doubt see what Merriam has to say.  ;D


a :  the upper stratum of soil bound by grass and plant roots into a thick mat
b :  an artificial substitute for this (as on a playing field)

Yep, it appears they're going back to what they had before.  Although, home plate area looks like it will be turf as well.

Thanks for the photo.

Baseball is replacing the synthetic turf baselines and halo that already existed. It was in bad shape  and needed to be replaced. They are also putting synthetic turf in the hitting area at home plate.
