Water worries in West force sports teams to get creative
Arizona Diamondbacks' Steven Souza Jr. walks on new synthetic grass at Chase Field before a spring training baseball game against the Chicago White Sox, March 25, 2019, in Phoenix, Ariz. The Diamondbacks ripped out the grass at the field ahead of the 2019 season, replacing it with the artificial turf. The team says they've saved about 16 million gallons of water because of it.
