Prior to the 2020 season, the Houston Astros grounds crew renovated the entire playing surface and installed 2.3 acres of new sod at Minute Maid Park. The grass, named Platinum TE Paspalum, is a turf that over the years has proven a terrific fit for the Minute Maid Park conditions due to its lower sunlight requirements. Platinum TE Paspalum has delivered greener color, an improved wear tolerance, and an increased tolerance to the shade at Minute Maid Park. In 2009, the Houston Astros became the first professional team to select Platinum TE Paspalum for their playing surface. After seeing the excellent results in Houston, two other Major League teams have followed the Astros' lead and installed Platinum TE Paspalum in their baseball fields.
