According to the AP, the sod will cost $1.50 per square foot and the seed will cost $30 for a 3-pound bag. Smaller bags of seed will be sold at Yankee Stadium.
The product licensee, Stadium Associates, said the Yankees sod, grown by DeLea Sod Farms of East Northport on Long Island, is unique because it is supposed to be cut more frequently than regular sod. Fred Pfaff, a spokesman for the company, told the AP that the Stadium's grass is mowed twice daily during the baseball season.
