Turf Futures

Expecting parents proudly share their ultrasound photos. This is in that category - sort of.

Bulls' Head Groundskeeper Scott Strickland is boasting about this shot taken at Sandhill Turf farm in Candor NC. It's a field of Tifway 419 Bermuda grass. Two acres are on order for the DBAP. Our turf will be replaced this winter as the playing surface is completely renovated - one of the capital improvements planned by the City of Durham.

Actually, you are looking a twins. The grass on the right is headed to Durham. The turf to the left is under contract to the Charlotte Knights for their new ballpark.
