Don't know if anybody else did this. It was called "Sox Sod." It was just the infield. Yes they kept the dirt basepaths.

It was done to save money they were having to maintain the infield and the drainage system at Comiskey Park wasn't the best back then so they thought this was the answer.

When Veeck bought the team he had it removed before the start of the 1976 season.
