    The listed distances in left center and center are too short by 7 or 8 feet.

    Fence height is 9 feet from left field line to straight away cf, 8 feet at the gate just to the right of the cf corner, then 14 feet in rf.

    After one year (beware small sample size) foul fly factor is 1.00, down from RFK's 1.06.

    HR factor is 0.90 (actually, HR/FB is same as as RFK, but there are fewer foul flies).

    TR factor is 1.16, likely from the deeper than advertised left center and center. I have not yet broken down the parks by where the balls are hit.

    Playing field elevation is 6.7 feet

    I don't remember where I saw it, but I read that Nationals Park is the most fair park in MLB with regards to favoring neither pitchers or batters.

    Using highly accurate aerial photography (being used to survey to route for a new sewer line)

    There are no curved sections in the outfield fence. There's a corner in straight away CF, 2 in left-center, and one to the right of right-center

    LF 336.7
    LC 369.3
    LC 379.1
    CF 409.7
    RC 372.7
    RF 335.1

    Foul territory is small
    Dugouts are parallel to the foul lines, 42 feet
    Behind home is arc 43 feet

    I posted the dimensions and did an analysis of how it'll play here. I concluded that it should be a great park for hitters.

    It'll take a while to see how the place plays. I think it's safe to say that there will be more HRs than at RFK. This is a good website that has the dimensions and more.

    Nationals Park dimensions

    You were in the right place, but the section at the Nationals site with the new park's dimensions can be a little tricky to locate. Try this link.

    As far as to whether the park will favor the pitchers, hitters or be neutral? It's a little too early for me to predict but I've always thought that when the weather in this area gets hot and humid, usually from mid-May through mid-September that the pitchers were in control.

    Nationals Park - Playing Field Dimensions

    Could some Nationals fan tell me what the dimensions of the playing field will be at the new park? , (such as the distances to the outfied walls/fencesand the height of those fences). Or could someone tell me where to look it up on the internet? Believe it or not,that information is not readily available on the Nationals' web site (although there is plenty information about ticket pricing).
    Also do team executives predict that the new park will be a hitter's park, a pitcher's park, or neutral?
