On This Date in Crimson Tide History:
June 28, 1968: Paul W. “Bear” Bryant recommended artificial turf be installed at Legion Field in Birmingham and Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa and noted that the university would immediately begin installing the synthetic grass on the practice fields. The approximate cost of putting in a 100-yard field was $200,000. City officials in Birmingham seemed to concur with Bryant's wishes, noting the poor playing conditions that existed with the seemingly ever worn-out grass at Legion Field. — Bryant Museum
June 28, 1976: Butch Hobson made his Boston debut at Fenway Park with a double off the center-field wall and a rare inside-the-park home run, both off the Orioles' Rudy May. Boston won 12 -8.
June 28, 1988: Terrence Cody was born in Fort Myers, Fla.
