    This article says they removed the real grass back in 1999, replaced it with SportsGrass, then went to Kentucy bluegrass.

    Z2C,
    The way I read that is that in 1999 they abandoned their experiment with sports grass (part artificial, part real) and returned to a Kentucky Bluegrass field.
    That is what I read in paragraphs 2 and 3.
    Kentucky Blue Grass is real grass, is it not?
    Then in 2002 they resodded it again with sod from New Jersey, once again real grass.

    So, I'm sure it was real grass from 1/2 way through the 1999 season till the end of the 2006 season.

    Yeah, thinking the same thing. I jus don't know how 'real' that grass can be considered though. Sounds more like a mutant lol
