New digs for the Cards. Does anyone know if it is a hitter's park, pitcher's park or neutral?

they want it to play neutral. i think the power alley's are a little bit deeper than busch II. not sure about foul ground. some early construction pictures seemed to show a fair amount of foul territory but maybe there were some field level seats going in. i am pretty sure it wont be a hitters park. i think its going to be more pitcher friendly, but no way of knowing until they play the games.

Here is a nice article on the new park. Neutral was the goal. The reduced foul territory might help the hitters out more than Old Busch.

One month until the home opener. They should be laying the sod in the next couple of days. :-)
