Blue Jays Finally Install A Real Dirt Infield In Toronto

The Blue Jays announced that they have finally decided to install a dirt infield at SkyDome (we refuse to call it the improperly-named Rogers Centre). This is just the first step in what is truly needed—real damn grass. It's disgraceful that major league ballplayers still have to risk serious injury on whatever the hell makes up the "turf" in this otherwise decent stadium. You can't tell us the technology doesn't exist to grow grass north of the border in a semi-dome. Please, Canada, show some respect and play our game with our surfaces: grass and dirt. Sincerely, The United States of America.
