Strip of Dirt From Home Plate to the Pitchers Mound

In older ballparks there used to be a strip of dirt running from the

pitcher's mound to home plate. More recently (past 60 years, roughly)

diamonds have grass surrounding the mound on all sides. When and why

did this change in groundskeeping occur? Thanks.
