      The Bullpen?
      A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                Some sort of screen to distract batters. Interesting.

                  Uh, no again...

                  The left field home run screen at the Coliseum is today's batters-eye at Dodger Stadium.

                        ???????????????????????

                        I'll start...

                        What part of the L.A. Memorial Coliseum was brought over to Dodger Stadium and is still used for every game to this day.

                        Hint: It's not homeplate, dirt or grass.
                        Isn't it the former left field screen now used as the "batter's eye" between the pavilions?

                            Yes and No

                            Yes Home plate is the same homeplate used at memorial stadium. This is the only Foul Pole used at Memorial stadium


                            The other one is the new pole.

                              Here's an easier one:
                              What are the farthest and shortest wall distances from home plate in the liveball era, and in what parks were they located?

                              What's the current shortest distance?

                                Hmmmm. Farthest, I'll say CF in the Polo Grounds: 483 ft.

                                Although Yankee Stadium was 490 ft until they remodeled the bleachers in 1937 and brought it in to 461.

                                Shortest I believe was also Polo Grounds: RF - 258 ft.

                                The current shortest distance is RF pole at Fenway: 302 ft. Next shortest is RF at AT&T park: 309 ft.

                                Longest current is I believe CF at Houston: 436 ft.
