Outfield grass OK to play on
The center field grass at Nationals Park was discolored because of the Elton John/Billy Joel concert on Saturday night. But team president Stan Kasten said the grass was not damaged and is OK to play on.
“It’s actually fine, just discolored in places,” Kasten said in an e-mail. “But the grass is undamaged. We’re painting it tonight and mowing in the morning. It’ll be fine. But it plays fine right now.”
The Nationals play their first game of the second half on Thursday against the Cubs.
