almost a 500 footer in the Trop today. That would barely clear a beachmansion for 3.

Not only that but he now has hit almost as many HR on the road (26) as he has at home (27)…..but some still cling to the belief that the only reason he has hit 17 more HR than his next closest competitor (22 in the AL) is because Judge magically only hits HR to the opposite field to the shortest dimension at Yankee Stadium….ok, sure—let the stats speak for themselves.

MLB hates tradition and loves money. They have to change one silly rule every spring. Just a matter of time.

I liked the old Polo Grounds, 480 to CF, 257 to RF.

Some are wrong. When Google maps made accurate aerial zoo, I found a few over 5 feet off.

Also, what is your favorite ballpark with outfield dimensions included?

Oracle Park, in San Francisco, is one of the most uniquely designed places to see a game. From Triples Alley, to McCovey Cove, that is some field.

The ballpark in Houston also has a few things that you don’t see in most places? Do you like simple ballparks?
I don't think they should be regulated, that's part of the quirkiness that I like even though I take jabs at small ballparks.

I like Kauffman mostly because it's where my team plays.
330 feet in left field, 387 in left center, 410 in center, 387 feet in right center, and 330 feet in right field.
Very symmetrical, but challenging. You have to be able to hit, not just swing for the fences. It will be interesting to see how next year's rule changes will affect this type of stadium.
