It would if Chien Ming Wang is pitching. :-D
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

If you go hittracker.com and sort Home Runs by the number of parks that they would've gone out in, and throw out Bonifacio's Inside the Park HR, of the 12 Home Runs hit which they say should have gone out in 0-2 Parks in the majors, 5 of them were in the new Yankee Stadium. I'm not sure what the #s would be in the old Yankee Stadium, but it's an interesting nugget.


THAT... is a cool site. thanks - never seen it before

Looks like my initial post was pretty accurate.
I could tell from seeing 1 inning of a preseason game that this park was going to be almost laughable.

This stadium has a glitch lol. I was their last week for the 11th inning walk off homer by AROD. 4 HR's that game and half of them just looked like flyballs that never fell. AROD's walkoff was B.S lmao I was pissed.

I'd like to get the definative word on whether the dimensions are the same or not. That's the place to start.

No, they're not.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
