Baseball Team’s Red Infield Is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen [PHOTO]
Nothing says summer quite like the green grass of a baseball field, which makes this all the more stunning.
The University of Northwestern Ohio has unveiled its new baseball field, complete with a red infield. Like bunting to break up a no-hitter, it seems somewhat controversial, considering green grass goes hand-in-hand with baseball like steroid allegations.

Time will tell if it catches on — Eastern Washington’s red football field sure hasn’t. Baseball is a sport steeped in tradition, but it’s not immune to change. The proliferation of playoff teams, instant replay and interleague play has proven that.
Still, we doubt alternate colored infield will spread. It’d be like changing the lyrics to “Buy me some peanuts and Doritos, I don’t care if I never get back” — it just seems off.
