According to a report by Sponichi, new turf will be installed at Kyocera Dome during the upcoming off-season. The turf was last replaced in 2011 and was considered, at the time, soft and similar to natural grass. However, baseballs also bounced higher off the turf compared to other stadium. The players voiced their opinions during the off-season last year and the Buffaloes apparently decided to comply.
