Bowie Kuhn once regarded Dutch turf better as the grass in MLB stadiums

I bumped into this English baseball newsletter created in 1973. It was tweeted by @ExtrainningsUK. It is nice to see how people from abroad are writing about the Netherlands.

In this newsletter, it is written that former MLB commissioner Bowie Kuhn visited the Netherlands during the 1973 European Championship and regarded the Dutch turf better than the turf in MLB ballparks.

In this newsletter, some familiar Dutch baseball names are mentioned as these players announced their retirement after the 1973 European Championship.
