Okay, I did some google searching, but couldn't find anything, so I'll ask here.

I've seen some pre-season football games, where there are random strips of dirt running through the grass, and my brother told me that they are baseball diamonds that have been converted for football. Is that true? How the hell do they do that?

Yep. Oakland and Miami both play on fields that are also used for baseball. I think they're the only ones, but I'm not sure.

Ohhh, I'd always wondered that too. I just figured they were cheap and didn't buy grass or just didn't take care of it.

Yes it is indeed converted baseball fields. Like powerslave said i believe Oakland and Miami are the only ones but there might be one more. The fields that have it look like shit.

I don't know if they even cover it with grass once baseball is over or not.
