    Thanks HG

    Thanks alot, hopefully it will be a nice day out. Im guessing youve had a couple experiences on astro turf. Did you ever play at Lackawanna in the minors? AKA: The Mini-Vet (not a good name to have)

    Its going to be much quicker that a regular surface. If the surface is wet at all, the ball will skip off the surface and be extremely fast. If its not wet, you will get a "true" hop everytime. You can play a bit deeper than normal in the infield because of the speed.
