Grass fields in Denver being closed due to drought
DENVER -- There is some bad news this morning for soccer and lacrosse fans. Denver's dry winter has shut down the grass fields across the city. This affects thousands of kids and adults who play in local leagues. The closure is temporary -- until April 1 -- but it will still have a huge impact on soccer and lacrosse teams as close to 100 parks will be closed. And considering the news comes only 15 days before the start of the spring season, some teams are finding it difficult to adjust their schedules.
