Blue Jays consider natural surface

The Toronto Blue Jays are considering replacing the artificial turf at the Rogers Centre with natural grass, according to MLB.com. There are hindrances, including the fact that the venue is used for more than just baseball.

"We're actually examining the ability of bringing grass in here," Blue Jays president Paul Beeston said earlier this week, according to the report. "This is a multi-purpose facility -- it doesn't mean we're going to do it, but we're looking into the possibility of doing it.

"We've brought grass in here before for soccer, so it can work. We can bring grass in here if it was just (for the) baseball season and we did not have football, we did not have concerts, we didn't have those other things."

As of now, the Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays are the only teams that still play on artificial turf.
