  • Dream Ballpark

    I sorta got this idea form the thread about building a ballpark. I was wondering what everyones dream park looked like. And no saying like I would ahve Wrigley walls and Tiger Stadium Grandstand. I want original ideas. Something like a scoreboard that has something to make it unique or stuff in the outfield to make it unique like the swimming pool in Arizona. I actually just got the idea so i'm gonna tell my dream park in another post later on like tomorrow. Can't wait to hear these original ideas.

    I would have 500 foot fences that are 30 feet high, with a 24" pitchers mound and grass up to your ankles.

      lol, that would make an interesting field. I'd like to see a game on that.

        Left field foul line: 320 feet
        Left center field: 380 feet
        Center field: 402 feet
        Right center field: 365 feet
        Right field foul line: 350 feet

        Fences: Left field: 9 feet, Center field: 8 feet, Right Field: 7 feet

        Backstop: 60 feet

        Foul territory: average/medium on all sides

        Other additions, etc. (optional):
        - rose bushes behind center field wall, being noticable to all fans
        - an old fashioned scoreboard behind right field wall, also behind the RF seats
        - bullpens are in between the rose bushes and the Left Field seats
        - dugouts are normal
        - 45,000 seat stadium in total, and here are the placements of the outfield seats:

        * Double decked Left Field seats; 14,000 seats in total here for both decks
        * Single deck Right Field seats; 10,000 seats in total stretched out, connecting to the corner part of stadium

        I like the looks of this ballpark. It's like a slight mixture of Jacobs Field and Wrigley Field.

            Left field foul line: 257 feet
            Left center field: 320 feet
            Center field: 532 feet
            Right center field: 595 feet
            Right field foul line: 390 feet

            Fences: Left field: 47 feet, Left Center Field: 30-10, Center field: 3 feet (above the grass because of the hill it would be 25 feet tall if there was no hill, Right Center: 12 Right Field: 6 feet

            Backstop: 45 feet

            Foul territory: Left Side: Large
            Right Side: Extremly Small

            This stadium would have overhanging seats in the 2nd deck of Right Field and Right Center Field. There would be a 22 foot tall hill in center field rising from hte ground at 425 slowly all the way to the Center Field Fence. The 47 foot tall fence in Left Field would be a clear fence (the kind used as walls in hockey) with seats behind it. That would definetly give an intersting view! In Center Field there would be a drive in parking lot (like a drive in thearter) that would be three stories high. I think this would have very interesting plays like bounces and rolls. It would be a doble deck stadium with team offices behind the left field seats (so the offices would be about 380- 400 ft. away from home plate. There would be a flag pole in Right Center. It would have a old-fashioned infield with a dirt path leading from the pithchers mound to home plate. A score board would be on top of the team offices in Left Field and a out of town scoreboard in Left Center with half of it on the field and the other half on the land behind the fence.

            If any one knows how and can find the time could you post a picture and/or blueprints of the field in this bulletin. Elvis do you think you could find the time to do it, or anyone else? It would be greatly appreciated.

                Damn, and I thought Polo was unique. That would make for an interesting game. I would deffinantly watch it.

                After thinking about it I would just have a small ballpark like in the Minors. There would be like those metal bleachers beyond the outfield fence. Then we would ahve a grandstand behind home, 1st and 3rd. The rest of the landscape behind the outfield would consist of a waterfall. There would also be a picnic area.

                left and right foul pole- 350
                right and left center- 375
                Center- 390

                I know this would have little income for a major league team but it is a good minor league park forme. Also I would have a score board in the outfield on the fence and it would be an old classic one. I would'nt copy Wrigleys but it would be a one where they hired people to change the numbers for games. That would be an awesome park. I would deffinently buy season tickets there.

                  Ok, now this one intrigues me!

                  A hobby I used to have an obsession with years ago was designing ballparks. I must've made hundreds of cool "blueprints" of every conceivable design imaginable. I actually still have most of these designs and may post some of them.

                  Anyway, this design sounds like fun, and now that I have a scanner, I'll scetch it out as I used to do, and post it. Of course it may not me exactly as it was imagined, because it will have to be a combination of the stats and ideas you gave me to work with, and what I see as being realistic in construction terms as I lay it out. I'm not someone who can do an "artist rendering" though, just realistic overhead and cut-away views, but it should be cool.

                      ah, elvis, i did the same thing. Most of them usually ended up looking like my dad's signature (okay... that's an exaggeration), but some of them were pretty hot. My best one looks kind of like this... http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?irv9fnnsqo4

                      my creative genius is currently in hibernation, or else i would list several hundreds of details about the stadium and such business.

                        I'm drafting parks in vectorworks off-and-on right now. I tend to do fantasy parks based on specific teams, like my Yankees, Marlins and Twins parks.

                        I'm still working on my website, once that's done I'll post it here.

                            Hey Elvis, can you do mine as well? I've been wanting to see what my custom ballpark looks like. By the way, I've updated my ballpark submission.

                              Yeah he want to turn a baseball field into a golf course. Add sand and foul territory would have water and the warning path in the outfield is tall grass like the rough So if batter hits it foul he loses 2 strokes and the ball lands all the way out deep in the outfield it lands in the tall grass and he has to dig it out or its inside the park homer.
