Here are the dimensions, from Ballparks.com:
RFK: Left field: 335 ft.; left-center: 385 ft.; center field: 410 ft.; right-center: 385 ft.; right field: 335 ft.
Olympic: Foul lines: 325; power alleys: 375; center field: 404
And Hiram Bithorn was about 15 feet smaller than Olympic in every dimension. Not sure what average stadium dimensions are in the majors, but RFK is definitely more pitcher-friendly. I'll hopefully be able to give a first-person description in the next few weeks.
