Watch turf go in at Lowertown Ballpark in 2 minutes

The City of St. Paul's Nick Nelson has a new video out: it shows the turf, basepaths and home plate being installed in the Lowertown Ballpark last week -- in just two minutes.

Nelson shot the time-lapse with a GoPro camera installed in the stadium stands just behind home plate. The CHS Field got about 95,000 square feet of sod installed from a Wisconsin farm. It grows the turf for Wrigley Field and Miller Park, as well.
