Yankees sod available at Home Depot for $1.25 per square foot

With the new Yankee Stadium now open for business, DeLea Sod Farms has got some leftover sod and have they got a deal for you.

The company secured permission from Major League Baseball and the Yankees to form a company called Stadium Associates that will market the leftover sod at a price of $1.50 per square foot at 25 Home Depot locations in the Tri-State area. You can also buy a three-ounce bag of Yankees grass seed for $14.95.

Darrell Rovell adds that he was "told that it's not just any old sod. It's a proprietary Kentucky Bluegrass blend. It's designed to take a beating, but it also requires much greater care."
