You know it's bad enough that a Colorado news station is rubbing our face in the turf because we have to outsource our grass supply from the Rocky Mountain state, but at least they could have gotten their facts straight:
In recent years, the family-owned sod farm that opened in 1979 has provided the sod for Coors Field, Invesco Field at Mile High, Wrigley Field, and Busch Stadium. Its location near the South Platte River and sand composition gives its grass an opportunity to drain much faster than other turf. Target Field is set to have a retractable roof and will have heat cables to potentially melt snow making drainage essential.
According to a well-placed source who is very familiar with the Twins stadium project (and gin), Target Field is not in fact set to have a retractable roof. We regret their error.
