the stadium is almost at sea level, thats part of the reason in addition to distance that balls dont fly out as far as they would in other parks. Dodger Stadium, Petco, Pacbell are almost at sea level elevation i think.

However, they kind of negated that by making the deepest point in right-center, at 411 feet. It's hard to tell what they were planning with that...


The reason is if you look at a diagram of the park, that 322 really doesn't exist. Its 322 if you hit it straight down the line, but the fence starts slanting back really quicky. If you hit a HR straight over the right fielder's head it probably be like 350.

We'll have to give it more time, though. It's only been the first homestand, so maybe the wind's just been light. It could change soon. However, I wouldn't bank on that, because reports were that the ball wasn't carrying well in practice.


There's not that direct a connection between park effects on HRs and other hits and runs. There are several high homer low scoring parks and a few low homer, high scoring parks.
