Turn Your Backyard into Fenway Park

Can't say I'm shocked by this story. Sports Illustrated reports that you can now purchase a bag of grass seed that has a similar Kentucky Bluegrass and perennial ryegrass mix as the seed used on the Fenway Park turf. Sort of a Carl Spackler special. You can also get mixes used at Wrigley Field, the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, and Busch Stadium in St. Louis. Apparently, the Pittsburgh Pirates grass seed mix was too costly and traded for two bags of peat moss to be named later.

Here's the real shock: The Red Sox haven't licensed the field green paint color made by California Paints that is used to paint the Green Monster. Seems like that would have been a no-brainer in the never-ending quest for "ancillary" income.
