    Use 100% P.Rye to overseed. It's cheap, very wear tolerant, and looks good. There are also new varieties that have good disease resistance. If you plant an "Athletic Field Mix" with 50/50 P. Rye/K. Blue, You'll end up with mostly P.Rye anyhow so save your money and go 100% P.Rye. There are turf type TF out there. I have never use them because I was told that they will clump when injured. For Football, Soccer, Lacose, stay away because of this. For baseball and softball maybe alright, no aggressive play on the grass in that sport. Plus TF has to mature about a year to have the same wear tolerance as PRye or K.Blue
