I know a lot of small shops who do minor league work.To my knowledge, no one in MLB uses Scotts manufactured product. It just a name and money thing.
Scott's MLB seed uses the exact same cultivars used in the designated ball parks, but there was no claim that the ball parks themselves use Scott's products, either seed or fert. Just so happens, I bought a few bags of the Great American Ballpark blend on closeout, out of curiosity. I was impressed. Definitely a quality product, all top cultivars in NTEP trials, about the best consumer seed blend I ever saw. But, I'm thinking Scott's may have given up on it, because they seem to have taken most of the info off the website. Too bad, in a way, because it was a true premium product, and there is a need for that.
