Why is this a concern for Franklin?
A new field was installed at Franklin High School with crumb rubber. There are two additional fields being budgeted for an update in the next couple of years. If there is enough interest, then perhaps the crumb rubber on those two (Beaver Pond and Pisani Field) could be updated with a safer mix than crumb rubber.

"It's the most common form of artificial turf and millions of children play on it every day, but is it safe? We put the question to the feds in our NBC News investigation."
"The list has nearly doubled, from 34 to 63 gathered from around the country. 15 have died."

"We're not willing to let our kids be the guinea pigs"
Thanks for the alert from @turfgrassforum
