One more sign that baseball season is coming: the turf is being put in at Chase Field today.
This will give the sod and grass just over four weeks to set in before the D-backs play their first game on the field against the Chicago Cubs for the final two exhibition games on April 2 and 3 (those tickets go on sale Saturday, more on that below).
As of the time of this blog post, we are just 33 days away (793 1/2 hours if you want to break it down further) from the first pitch of the regular season against the Padres at Chase Field.
