    KC-
    Technically, that's not true. The Astrodome originally had glass panes in the roof, but players said it caused too much glare, so they were painted white. Once they were painted, the grass died, so they needed to come up with a better solution. Sadly, astroturf was born.

    Fieldturf is much better, since it is much softer and is actually made up of individual plastic blades. I think there's also rubber underneath, though I know the warning tracks are all rubberized.

They need to make a turf as close as possible to playing on real grass so players don't get hurt or the ball doesn't go any faster or jump higher than that fake pathetic turf of the 70s. You know you can't grow real grass in indoors and it costs money to maintain a grass field. So I hope they create a technique to make sports turf kind of like real grass so they can play in dome ballparks as well as outside ballparks.
    All of the domed stadia now have Fieldturf or something similar. Astroturf has been relegated to the ash heap of Major League Baseball history.

    So how youre gonna give light to grass inside the dome? Those roof lights arent enough.It wont grow with those lights.

    A plant can use any light. Did you ever grow a plant inside a house? As long as they have small lights, the grass should be fine.

    Cause the grass needs real sunlight in order to grow.

    Why can't you grow real grass indoors?
