The Dodgers have super special grass, as described on Dodgers.com

The Dodgers installed a brand new state-of-the-art grass field after the conclusion of the 1995 season. Prescription Athletic Turf (PAT), created and installed by the Cincinnati-based Motz Group, used the latest agronomic and engineering technology to manage field moisture through controlled drainage and irrigation. The 100,000 square feet of bermuda grass is grown on pure sand, beneath which a vacuum chamber is laid over a water-tight plastic barrier that forcibly extracts water during heavy rains. New moisture gauges monitor the field's water level in coordination with a microprocessor that controls drainage functions. A computer controller has the ability to reverse the scenario and subirrigate when the sand's moisture reading drops below the optimal level.

It probably cost like 30 bazillion dollars. So they do NOT need some woman to prance around on the field in hooker shoes making holes in their grass. I'm sure if they wanted the field aerated they'd hire a professional.
Don't get me started on the navel ring.
