Nothing says summer quite like the green grass of a baseball field, which makes this all the more stunning.  Hard on the heels of Boise State's Blue "Smurf Turf" and the bright red turf installed at NCAA I-AA Football Champs Eastern Washington University, here comes the red infield!

The University of Northwestern Ohio has unveiled its new baseball field, complete with a red infield. Like bunting to break up a no-hitter, it seems somewhat controversial, considering green grass goes hand-in-hand with baseball like steroid allegations.

Time will tell if it catches on. Baseball is a sport steeped in tradition, but it's not immune to change. The proliferation of playoff teams, instant replay and interleague play has proven that.

Still, we doubt alternate colored infield will spread. It'd be like changing the lyrics to "Buy me some peanuts and Doritos, I don't care if I never get back" -- it just seems off.
