    Love the field done by JPL BMX! Having a center-fielder who can run will be vital, I suspect.

    A small, 35,000-40,000 seat baseball-only grass field stadium that is integrated into the middle of a city. The outfield dimensions would be symtetrical, at least 330' down both lines, and at least 415' to dead center field. They don't have to use a lot of red brick, but there's nothing wrong with that. It looks nice. However, the Pirates didn't use red brick but the sandstone or whatever it is looks nice. The stadium would have lights up on individual towers, as opposed to large banks of lights that encircle the stadium like the old multi-purpose AstroTurf cookie-cutters used to have.

    I'll fix that!

    Elvis and Steveox -
    The renderings of yours ballpark are both fascinating and interesting; fascinating because of the vastness of the alleys and interesting because of the configuration of the park.

    What interests me, however, is what's not illustrated or mentioned and that is the height of the upper deck (minus and plus the light towers) and the declivity of the seating sections....the slant angle of the seats in the lower extremities and the steepness of the upper decks. What ranges would you propose in your drawings and what compliances do you think you'd have to consider? Hope you keep up the good stuff.

    Ok here is my interpretation. I forgot how much time it takes to finish them properly, so for future drawings, I'm not going to be quite so detailed as far as individual seating sections and tunnels - yes I'm lazy.

    You didn't say where to put the bulpens, so I left them out...somewhere in the outfield or down the foul lines...also, I wasn't quite sure about the terraced drive-in parking beyond the center field fence.

    Dang, I forgot the flagpole and the side-cutaway view!

    Sorry...I'll add it to the next one.

    Knick9, you're up next...

    I wanna see that someday

    And finally, my Twins park, a multi-use stadium:
    You know what? I like this design. I think this should be capitalized. Here's my new proposal, following the picture above:

    Left/Right Field Foul Lines: 305 feet
    Left/Right Field Corners (directly behind the foul poles, not stretching out in diagonal): 385 feet
    Left/Right Center Field: 373 feet
    Center Field: 404 feet
    Backstop: 75 feet
    Foul Territory: Small, excluding the backstop

    Fences:
    LFFL to LFC: 31 feet
    LCF to CF: 7 feet

    Can be compared to:
    Polo Grounds
    Fenway Park
    Astros Field

    Averages:
    Between Left & Right Foul Lines and Corners: 345 feet
    Between Left & Right Corners and Left & Right Center Fields: 379 feet

    Capacity: 37,000

    Seating formation:

    Behind backstop: double decker, 8,000 x 2 seats + 100 seats
    Beside Left and Right Fields: 5,000 x 2 seats
    Beyond the outfield: 5,000 x 2 seats

    I would really like to see this one as a sketch, Elvis. Forget the others for now. :atthepc

    Though it is a rule that the dimensions have to be at least this:

    Originally posted by official MLB rules to dimensions
    Left field Foul Line: 325
    Center Field: 400 feet
    Right Field Foul Line: 325
    The rule can be bended if you make it up with a big fence. The only thing that my ballpark is lacking is center field distance, so I will make it up by putting a 15 feet fence surounding the entire wall padding.

    fences:
    15 feet for all the outfield walls along with Wrigley Field-ilke metal fence tops
    backstop: 60 feet
    foul territory: Average
    capacity: 37,000
    -----------------
    That's a cool idea - having the same dimensions from pole to pole. Why not? Although it would probably have to be at least 390 ft. to be allowed. Aren't little league fields like that?
