Were defeated Ted thirteen thirty K and as as you know last hour we talking about the Miami Marlins and their new baseball stadium right and I talked about. You ask me about turf is Iowa I was wrong that is not artificial turf in his grass until they keep the lid is a retractable roof stadium. But it's usually closed. But there's so they at first I guess they use Bermuda grass which was supposed to grow well in the shade. But there's one particular spot they had trouble with them right field somewhere and so they you know they try to put heat lamps on its that really didn't work. So I guess they've replaced the Bermuda grass now with a different type of grass that is common in. Subtropical areas of the world and as an ordinary as an agent now they're trying to get that award. But that is a natural grass stadium and does have retractable roof with. Often during the summer in the rain in Miami it's close laws but with the Kauffman Stadium or royal stadium in Kansas City units started out with a artificial turf. Yes and a few years ago they went back to natural which I thought it was great I completely support that yet the first of Major League course went back on his turf though the royals you know tailored their rosters.
