    I cant believe I'm asking about stripes.....but I must

    Now be honest, did you sit in your ez chair this evening and say..."how did they do that on the infield?" I am not a striping nut, but but those patterns were somthing else....oh, and by the way, how the heck did they do those??

    (this might be a ? that was asked last summer but I only watch baseball when it gets to the div championships)...so sorry if this was discussed b4

    I am not a pro, like most of you folks, but even I was amazed. I said to my wife, "Look at that star pattern on the infield." Of course, she just yawned.

    I'm not a Yankees fan but they sure did play some awesome defense in that game.

    Those stripes really made the game look like it was being played on a postcard, beautiful.
    Did you notice how tall the outfield grass is?
    Real thick, slows down the ball out there.
