Over the past few months questions have been raised about the safety of artificial turf. I have followed the issue with interest, of course, and get e-mail requests every week asking for my views.
Frankly, I have mixed feelings about artificial turf. I graduated from college with a full leg cast after suffering a torn ACL one March playing college lacrosse on a still partially frozen grass field in New Hampshire. I wonder to this day whether the injury would have happened had I been playing on artificial turf.
