Top Pitcher / Batter Parks.

Postby RJCarrot » Wed May 04, 2005 4:09 pm

Ok, this is my first year doing fantasy baseball and I have picked up alot so far.

However I always hear people talking about the dreaded Coors field, and pitcher / batter parks.

As someone who is having some trouble with pitching, could some of the pros out there answer me a couple questions.

What makes a park a pitchers park?
What makes a park a batters park?
What would you say are the top 5 pitchers parks in order?
What would you say are the top 5 batters parks in order?

Thanks for the info.

Lots of things really, but mainly the amount of foul territory, the dimensions of the park, and in some cases (Coors and a few others) the weather/envinronment
