Inside the Dirt Farm That Supplies 86% of MLB Stadiums | WSJ A to B

Duraedge Products, Inc. creates infield mixes for 26 out of 30 Major League Baseball stadiums, including the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. Their key ingredient: Pittsburgh red bed claystone. Excavators will mine and process approximately 30,000 tons of clay over the course of a year for Duraedge; then the company mixes it with silt and sand to create infield mix. But how does the clay get from mine to the MLB ballpark?

WSJ explains how a single dirt farm in Pennsylvania takes clay and turns it into infield mix used in MLB stadiums.
