While the fact that there is "Yankees grass" isn't new...you really need to experience the marketing. By the way, this falls into the "if the Mets did this...." category.
For the fan and lawn enthusiast we offer you Yankees Grass Seed™. In these bags, you will find the same grass seed that is used to grow Yankees Sod™, a proprietary blend of 100% Kentucky Bluegrass. This one-of-a-kind mixture was selected specifically for the Inaugural Season at Yankee Stadium™ because of its special growing characteristics and unparalleled performance capabilities. Now Yankees Grass Seed™ can be incorporated into your existing lawn or used to grow a brand new lawn.
For decades, baseball fans have revered the grass at Yankee Stadium. The field is a special place for those few who are fortunate enough to wear the uniform. But for everyone else, even fans who tour the Stadium, the grass is off-limits.
So how did it all start? In the Spring of 2007, DeLea Sod Farms planted three varieties of 100% Kentucky Bluegrass on a special 80 acre farm in Southern New Jersey.
With 15 of these 80 acres under contract for the Yankees, that left 65 acres of the same grass available for you. And, with the help of Major League Baseball Properties Licensing team, Authentic Yankees Sod™ was born.
You know, I started out wanting to goof on this, now I wish I had thought of it. Maybe I will go into the Plexiglass business. Are you tired of your neighbor looking directly into your yard, now with traditional Citiglass you can experience the joy of obstructing views....hmmm lemme call Dave Howard.
If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.
