Grass in the concrete ballpark

January 26, 2015

Tell me
when grass in the ballpark became
such a hot topic
and when AstroTurf became an enemy of the fan base.

I remember
the lime green surface that expanded in the July heat
and produced the highest bounces.

It was present
when Bell dropped to his knees,
Candy booked the ticket to Atlanta,
and Joe sent the Phillies home.

And at some point,
the surface became a villain,
compared to a basketball court,
a deterrent for free agents.

So grass is the answer?
Snap the fingers and everything is fixed?

Grass has my support,
yet installation is tricky,
like a Koufax curveball.

So wait until 2018,
but don’t hold your breath.
