After playing in one of the better NL hitting parks for more than three decades, the Reds move next door to a new facility this season. The dimensions are fairly similar to what Cinergy was until two years ago (though they've avoided making this a symmetrical cookie cutter): 325, 379, 404, 370, 328 feet from left to right. The walls measure eight feet high down the lines and in center field and 12-feet high in the gaps. Also, there is six more feet of foul space from home plate to the seats, which will lead to more pop outs in foul territory.
The skinny: The early speculation is it will be fairly neutral, but perhaps overall will favor pitchers and lefthanded power. Unless we tell you otherwise, treat it as a neutral field during its inaugural season. The closer fences in right field should help Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey Jr.

THERE YOU GO!!!
