Definition of a homerun: When the baseball gets hit to a DISTANCE that the fielder cannot get it into homeplate before the batter rounds the bases.
Associated Press -- Citi Field's smaller dimensions helped opponents more than the New York Mets.
Thanks Sandy Alderson.
There's only a few more new parks to be built soon, wish one of them would have actually interesting dimensions and a CF that is legit deep. Even better, a reasonable deep CF and an even deeper LCF or RCF like OYS. A 420 CF and a 440 LCF for instance would be cool with shorter down the line to balance it out. I want different parks.
I will say the original design of Minute Maid left a bit of a void in CF and they didn't nicely wrap the right field stands around the outfield into center field. If they had done like a Wrigley Park style wrapping of the outfield seats, I think they could sit more folks and do some cooler things in the dead center field area. Regardless, it is a great place to watch a game and a very underrated park.
Ivy? That will look cool.
