The Las Vegas Ballpark will install new turf before the baseball season

Las Vegas, Nev. (FOX5) -The Las Vegas Aviators are playing on new turf this year.

Landscaping crews took delivery and began installing the new sod Thursday morning. Sod arrived from California around 6:45 and by 9 the indoor grass was already installed.

Aviators spokesman Jim Gemma said this new Tahoma 31 Bermuda sod is very similar to the Bermuda grass they installed last year, but with one small difference.

“This grass grows more in the summer.”

It takes three days to complete the installation.

Major League teams will be the first to use it. On March 4th and 5th, the Cincinnati Reds play the Oakland A’s in the first of two big league weekends. On March 18 and 19, the Colorado Rockies will play the Kansas City Royals.

The Aviators home game is on April 4 when they host the Oklahoma Dodgers.
