  • Images of Stadium Shadows on the Field of Play

    Purely for general interest... Post some photos of shadows cast by the stadium itself onto the field during play. Players (usually batters) often complain of situations in which the P is in direct sunlight, and the batter in shade, making identifying spin on the ball difficult.

    Sometimes, the 3B can have a hard time picking up the ball in a similar situation. Purely for general interest, this is not intended to be a stadium bashing thread. Game time and time of the year (early-mid-late season) is also a factor of course.



    Some shadows IMMEDIATELY identify the stadium, which I kind of like. Others evoke design questions or even head scratching, etc.

    Post the park name, then photo...

                      Not game time, but it's all I can find from THREE RIVERS at the moment.

                          Even with the roof closed, MILLER PARK has unique shadows.
