Abstract/Contents:Discusses the current endeavors of scientists at the University of California, Riverside, to isolate a turf that will overcome the challenges of being a sports turf for the Bank One Ballpark, a proposed ballpark for the newest major league team. Discusses how sports turf specialist Steve Cockerham leads the investigation, and the potential for DeAnza, a hybrid of Bermudagrass, as currently being the most promising turf.
