Winston-Salem Will Be Getting Sod

The Winston-Salem Dash are the 'Class A-Advanced' affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, and they'll be opening a new stadium this spring. That means sod. Around 2 or 3 acres of the stuff. They'll be installing Tifway 419 (from Sandhill Turf) in March to be ready for their April 13 home opener. The Winston-Salem Journal has our money quote:

Charles "Chuck" Hutchings, a senior project manager for Samet Corp., the general contractor building the ballpark, said that crews are hoping to have the sod installed at the Dash ballpark by the middle of March.

"We're waiting to get it as close to the growing season for sod to implant, which is warmer temperatures, where the sod will actually take root," Hutchings said.

Until next time!
