      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.
      Well, your answers for present-day parks are correct, but your classic answers are both wrong. The real answers are a bit surprising.

        Well I knew Fenway and Braves Field both used to be 550 to center, but I thought that they brought the fences in before the live-ball era.

        Oh, The LA Coliseum was 251! Shortest!

          Easy Question to an Easy Answer. Denvers Mile High Stadium hosted the largest attendance for an minor league game.

            Good! Yeah, the Braves fence wasn't moved in until 1927, while Fenway... I'm not so sure about. I know the dead-center distance according to Clem was 488', but before the 1934 renovations occasionally they put temporary stands on Duffy's Cliff, so that would bring it back down.

            Here are the longest distances in the liveball era:
            1). Braves Field - 550
            2). Yankee Stadium - 490
            3). Fenway Park - 488
            4). Polo Grounds - 483
            5). Cleveland Municipal Stadium - 470
            6). Tiger Stadium - 467
            7). Forbes Field - 462
            8). League Park - 460
            9). Griffith - 457
            10). Comiskey Park - 455

            shortest:
            1). LA Memorial Coliseum - 251
            2). Yankee Stadium - 258
            2). Polo Grounds - 258
            4). Baker Bowl - 281
            5). League Park - 290

              The Astrodome in 1965. And Dodger Stadium debuted the first color video board in 1980.

                          Here's how the original scoreboard looked from 1969 through the mid 1980s.


                          Now,here's the scoreboard from the 1980s through 1994,with the addition of the center field Diamond Vision.
