Best Answer

The Astros (Baseball team) were the first ones to have it. The Astrodome sits quietly gathering dust and items for storage in Houston. The domed stadium was home to the Houston Oilers, Astros and Stock Show and Rodeo along with playing host to the NBA Finals, professional boxing, tennis extravaganzas and numerous high school football playoff games.

How do you install astroturf?

It's a very long and complex procedure, the best people to this question would be Astroturf companies.. It depends on the surface to which you wish to affix the astroturf. Replacing living sod, i.e. securing it to dirt or turf is difficult, but for covering wood, cement, metal, asphalt, or other smooth surfaces is very simple. Outdoor carpet glue, sometimes called rug glue or cement glue, can be spread in a thin (1/16th inch, or brushed on) layer, in 2 to 4 sq. ft. sections, rolling the astroturf onto it while still tacky. Try to prevent wrinkles from forming as you lay the astroturf down. If any do form, be sure to smooth them out before the glue dries.

In soccer are hard-ground goalkeeper gloves the same as AstroTurf goalkeeper gloves?

Yes, they are designed for the same purpose. Normal goalkeeper gloves rip up instantly on astroturf. But hard-ground/AstroTurf goalkeeper gloves are designed with the same material to withstand harder surfaces and not ripping.
