    Like the Joe...don't form your opinion until you see it in person. I have not yet seen a pic...including the 30 or so I've taken on two separate occasions...remotely do it justice. It's gorgeous.

    Plus it cost the school $0...it was donated by a lover of Louisiana Tech. This is big for the program.

    Having logged many hours of field maintenance at the Love Shack, I would bet the current players are very happy about the new turf.
    I would think a more consistent playing surface should lead to less fielding errors and thus a better product.

    Question: Is sliding into bases on turf much different than sliding on dirt? Rug burns (labg)? The major league fields I have seen have turf "grass" and dirt infields.

    A little lagniappe: lower uniform cleaning bills.

    Vandy switched to turf a few years ago. I imagine they put some sort of infill material to soften the ground. You can see some of that stuff kick up in the below pics. This isn't old school astroturf.

    It's shredded rubber that kicks up. It's the same field turf currently used on football fields. Old school astroturf has been obsolete for years.

    I was surprised that the infields have no dirt around the bases. I would think the head-first slide will be used less.

    Football practice field, track infield, and soccer field all still have to be mowed. Or they can come by my house.
