    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.
