    I've been thinking of doing this for years. I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the time.

            Well...this guy that lives about ten miles from me, he built an awesome Wiffleball field. I don't know him personally, I just read it in the local paper. He even has offical Wiffleball tournaments there.

                If I had the land and the money, you'd better bet that I'd build my own place. Maybe even one where you could have a few friends over and play a real game. Of course, you'd have to have a LOT of money to do that. I guess I still have time to make money like that, though, seeing as I'm not quite 20 yet.

                  Isn't it just north of Road Eyeland, but SW of Main?

                    That guy did a good job considering what he had to work with.

                    Sure I would build my own ballpark...if I did it at an appropiate time that is.

                    This is what my ballpark would look like:

                    Left Field Foul Line: 320 feet
                    Left Center Field: 365/380 feet (haven't decided about this)
                    Center Field: 405 feet
                    Right center Field: 365/380 feet
                    Right Field Foul Line: 350 feet

                    Fenway Park old fashioned scoreboard: Right Field
                    Rose bushes in deep center field
                    Tiger Stadium double deckers

                    more to come...

                          I would just build a Ballfield with brick dugouts.I put 5 foot fences around the outfield so many outfielders have a chance to rob you a homer. Plus its surrounded by hills on both sides so that way people can sit on the hill and watch us play. And my field would look like this 215 Pole,, 265 right and left and 310 dead center with flag pole i center field.And Ill add lights there too.
