From his April 3, 2005 column (see page 2):
This season, for the first time since the Astrodome opened in 1965, every National League game will be played on real grass.Mr. Will seems to have spoken too soon.
I have already sent the Brewers an e-mail expressing my support for the considered change.
I strongly support the installation of artificial turf in Miller Park, not only for the better appearance,but also because I believe it would be a superb fit for the skill sets of a number of the players on the Brewers (Rickie Weeks, Corey Hart, Tony Gwynn Jr. Bill Hall, Ryan Braun, and Mike Cameron), giving the team a bit more of an edge in Miller Park.
Call it getting the Brewers a bit more home-field advantage.
