Grow Fenway Park grass in your backyard
Want your yard to look as lush and as green as the grass at Fenway Park? That gardener's dream may now be easier to achieve, thank to a new sponsorship agreement between Major League Baseball Properties and Scotts Co. LLC, an outfit known for garden-care products such as ScottsMiracle-Gro.
"Fans will now be able to purchase grass seed blends and fertilizers featured in some of the most iconic Major League ballparks," Major League Baseball Properties and Scotts said in a press release. "These products, designed by Scotts in consultation with the head groundskeeper at each ballpark, utilize the same Scotts varieties and technology used on the fields. Grass seed blends and fertilizers will debut in 2010 for fans of the Boston Red Sox (Fenway Park), Chicago Cubs (Wrigley Field), Cincinnati Reds (Great American Ballpark), Philadelphia Phillies (Citizens Bank Park), and St. Louis Cardinals (Busch Stadium)."
As part of the agreement with Major League Baseball Properties, Scotts becomes the "official lawn care company of Major League Baseball."
