    At the Metrodome and Wrigley the bullpens are on the field because there isn't any room for them in the outfield, unless they re-designed the bleachers.

      i understand why does teams don't have bullpens but their is no excuse for newer parks to have them on the field.

        Which new parks have them on the field? I can't think of any.

          (Insert Phone Company) Park in San Francisco. I heard that the reason they are on the field is because they forgot to design space for them.

            Oooops. Good lord...



            Personally, I like seeing the pitchers warming up down on the field.

              Tropicana Field also has the bullpens on the field near the outfield corners.

                Petco Park also has a bullpen on the field down the RF line....and the other one in centerfield. Strange set up, not particularly sure why they did this.

                  I thought it was odd at AT&T Park a few weeks ago that the pitchers didn't all sit down in the bullpen during the game. In most parks the pitchers all sit down there

                    How about bullpens in FAIR territory? Got to love the Polo Grounds... the only fair territory pens in the history of MLB.

                      I could see having the bullpens in fair territory in the old days. Teams didn't replace pitchers 5 times in every game.

                        Power Alley distances at 440+ and Center Field at 483 helped little bit as well. The PG is still the only park that did this, regardless of how often team changed (or in this case, did not change) pitchers.

                          All bullpens are off the field.

                            What are you talking about Manhattan? The pens at the Polo Grounds were in fair territory, in deep left center and deep right center. As I posted, distances to the power alleys were 440+ at the PG, so putting the pens out there was no problem.....

                            No other park had the unique dimensions the PG had, hence it being the only park with fair territory pens.

                              I hope to see the bullpens at New Yankee Stadium during the 2009 M.L.B Season
