Default Re: AstroTurf rolled out at Reliant

Quote:
The AstroTurf brand, originated by Monsanto, was acquired in 2005 by the Peeples family-owned Textile Management Associates of Dalton, Ga. It is used at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, by Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays, and by several colleges, including Kansas State, Boston College and Ohio State.
I looked into this long time ago. What this article doesn't tell the reader is that the Blue Jays and Rays field, as well as all those other college venues, except for the Rams' Edward Jones Dome, are PERMANENT installations. The Ram's stadium is a ONE PIECE FIELD that is rolled up by a giant electric roller and stored in a covered carved out storage area in the stadium floor at one end of the field beyond the EZ.............in other words, NO SEAMS REQUIRE RECONSTRUCTION for each conversion.
