I think it would take way more than a ton of regolith to cover a baseball field.
I'm not real certain of the facts on this point but somone else (maybe in another thread) said a ton wouldn't even be enough to fill in a driveway.
How much do you think your car weighs? Now imagine a pile of dirt that size... I don't think that would come even close to covering a baseball field.

Re: Moon in colour.
So why did James Lovell report it was grey?
Did he "actually" fly over it?
The engine burned for just over four minutes, and then suddenly the avid audience of television-watchers on Earth had the first-ever eyewitness account of the lunar surface from astronaut James Lovell.
"The moon is essentially grey," he said. "No colour. Looks like plaster of Paris. Sort of a greyish beach sand."
Who is Buzz Armstrong?
The orbiting Apollo astronauts noticed a peculiar phenomenon when they observed the lunar surface at a small angle related to the sun's light. At such small angle, the lunar surface appeared warm brown colored.
When I look at the mare, I see a big swatch of - of the tan-colored mare down to the south that goes over towards Guericke. And I see a - a tongue of darker gray material.

Maybe if people knew enough about the mission to actually know the names of the astronauts they would know that they did happen. Ignorance is no excuse.
