Fixing the Field

So the Winter Classic basically ruined the turf at Citizens Bank Park, which the Phillies and everybody expected.

So beginning last week and continuing through the end of this week, the Phillies grounds crew is removing the old turf and replacing it with new turf. Everything should be ready to go by April 2, when the Phillies host the On Deck Series. And for those wondering about the seats in the uppder deck: (UPDATE) the Phillies have told me they are removed by sections to access the flooring to coat the cement. They are returned and refastened as the coating is finished. It’s hard to see in the photos, but the seats that have been removed are stacked in the next section.
