New grass on the field

Employees of Clark Companies of Delhi, New York, apply fresh sod on Bodie Grim Field in Jim Barnett Park on Wednesday. The new grass, which will cover about 20,000 square feet, is a mixture of 80% tall fescue and 20% Kentucky bluegrass. The work is part of an agreement between Winchester and Shenandoah University that will result in about $4.5 million in improvements to four ball fields in the park.

Why is a company from Delhi, New York contracted to apply the new sod to Bodie Grim Field? Surely there is a local company who could have done the job.


I was wondering the same thing. I guess they saved five cents.


It’s probably a company that specializes in ball field renovation & restoration. They are doing a lot more than just putting sod down. Shenandoah University with the NCAA probably certain specs for athletic fields.
