But I still think if you're gonna do anything crazy, snipers in the outfield is the way to go.
The giant pond, which is also 40-feet deep and contains eight adult alligators, sits in right-centerfield and will present an interesting challenge to pitchers and outfielders during the Astros-Braves National League divisional series that begins this afternoon.
The ground rules established by the Astros for the new pond makes any ball that finds its way into the water an automatic ground rule double. However, if a fielder dares go in search of the ball – while risking almost certain death due to the alligators – and re-emerges with it in hand, the entire side is retired.
“That life or death decision the outfielders will have to make every time the ball plunges into the water is going to make for some great baseball,” said Tom Williams, Houston’s grounds crew manager. “’Let the ball go and stay alive, or help my team and risk almost certain death?’ That’s what baseball is all about.”
