GRASS IS GREENER: Wallace Wade Stadium re-build taking root

For the last six months, Duke’s Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium has been a field in name only. As bulldozers have rolled along and trucks rumbled in and out of the construction site — part of a major reconstruction of the 86-year-old facility — the focal part of the entire structure was growing nearly 400 miles away in Georgia. On Tuesday, the soon-to-be playing surface lay bare in the center of the horseshoe stadium, surrounded by bleachers and scaffolding. But by Friday afternoon, the last roll of sod — specifically, Latitude 36 Bermuda grass — was being installed, and a field was finally taking shape.
