Grassroots Movement

Work is progressing on the installation of FieldTurf at Ohio Stadium, and our friends at The Palestra have a video report. Workers began removing the sod from the Horseshoe on April 22 and rather than throw out the old grass, it was donated to Columbus and replanted on three of the city's three baseball fields.

Only one game — Michigan at Ohio State — was played on the grass field, so the turf is in excellent condition.

"These will become the most popular sporting fields in the city. Who doesn't want to play where the Buckeyes played?" hizzoner Michael B. Coleman told the Columbus Dispatch.
