Rolling Stones event leaves Detroit park in one piece

The Rolling Stones were a huge hit at Detroit's Comerica Park — and the damage wasn't as bad as expected.

Damage to the sod in the outfield from the Aug. 31 Stones concert was expected to be repaired in time for Monday's Tigers game against the Cleveland Indians, the team's groundskeeper said.

Heather Nabozny told the Detroit Free Press that about 22,500 square feet of sod mashed down by the crowd would be replaced. A typical concert at Comerica requires 13,500 square feet of new sod.
