Angels Selling Grass For $25 A Bag, Er.. Box

The Angels are pulling up their outfield turf due to upcoming Monster Truck events or some such Larry The Cable Guy nonsense. I never realized Orange County catered to so many rednecks. The Halos are cutting the turf into 4-inch squares and slapping it on a commemorative 50th anniversary tray in an attempt to market the otherwise wasted field as a piece of history. Please read this blurb from the OC Register while I look for my credit card...
Still, this is sod from the Big A. And proceeds benefit the Angels Baseball Foundation, which helps fund local and nationwide youth education and sports programs.

"Were anticipating selling 1,000 to 1,500 squares, hoping people will either replant it or keep watering it and keep it alive in the commemorative tray," said Robert Alvarado, vice president of marketing for the Angels.
Wait. Are you telling me that my $25 box of grass baseball memorabilia comes with homework? *puts credit card back in wallet* Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a sample of the same grass that Juan Rivera misplayed a ball on but that box of grass would be dead within a week and then my roommates would try to smoke it.

Give me a call when you're recarpeting the clubhouse.
