Major League Baseball has sent some top consultants to assure that the ballpark meets its specifications. For the pitcher’s mound and batter’s circle, for instance, the league insisted on a special blend of clay, silt and gravel common in American ballparks (Fenway Park seems to have been the model), yet the mix could not be found in Europe.
So the Dutch, not without some grumbling, flew in 200 tons of it from Virginia, and consultants for Major League Baseball installed it. Dutch customs officials at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, totally perplexed by a shipment of that much clay, accompanied the trucks to the building site, apparently to make sure nothing else was concealed inside the neat plastic bundles.
