    Here is the Top 10 parks in the leauge favoring hitters in the area of Runs using ESPN's "Park Factor" stat. This stat isn't very dependable because it is based on the performances of hitters on that team, not anybody else.
    1.Fenway Park (Red Sox)
    2 Kauffman Stadium (Royals)
    3 Coors Field (Rockies)
    4 Ameriquest Field (Rangers)
    5 Bank One Ballpark (Diamondbacks)
    6 Rogers Centre (Blue Jays)
    7 Metrodome (Twins)
    8 Minute Maid Park (Astros)
    9 Wrigley Field (Cubs)
    10 Miller Park (Brewers)
    11 Citizens Bank Park (Phillies)
    12 Tropicana Field (Devil Rays)
    13 Great American (Reds)
    14 PNC Park (Pirates)
    15 Shea Stadium (Mets)

      Its Coors field and then Fenway. Fenway is just a ridicilous ball park. If another team today tried to build something that looked like Fenway, they'd get shot down easily.

        Over the last three seasons or so, I'd be willing to bet that the old Ballpark in Arlington has surrendered the most homers and ranks in the top 2-3 in total runs.

          Wow, I can't believe Great American is that far down. It seems to play like a bandbox. Coors isn't so much the park, but rather the location it's in.

              Great America actually plays as a slight pitcher's park. it allows an incredible ammount of homers, but that's quite possibly just the Reds pitchers. as long as you're not a flyball pitcher, you'll do well at GAB (assuming you don't suck to begin with).

                  Has anyone with tthe Reds ever attempted to explain the acquisition of Eric Milton? What a dumb move.

                    "he knows how to win" and "the Yankees wanted him" and "we think he can become a sinkerball pitcher."

                    on the plus side, the Reds did fire the guy who said the third thing.

                      Let me guess, Dan O'Brien is your brother-in-law? His whole arguement in signing Milton is that GABP plays as a neutral park. Apparently, he's never been to a game there.

                        How can Fenway even be on the list. do you know how hard it would be to hit it over the green monster?

                            I don't understand how anyone can vote for any park that is not called COORS FIELD

                              My only reason for that is I that I believe the city it is located in, and not the park itself, is responsible for the offensive numbers there. If we are talking "hitters city", then yes, I would vote for Denver.
