    Enough with Yanks Stadium- A state of the art little legue Ball-Park

    No lead is safe at Yanks stadium... This little league ball park is not

    a good place to play real MLB baseball. I am sick and tired of watching

    no name and over the hill  baseball players hitting homeruns in this

    little league ball-park. Every routine fly-ball ball is always a home-run

    at Yankees stadium. Enough with Yanks stadium. The baseball

    commissioner got to step-up... and stop this ugly show.

    If Ted Williams played all his home games there, he would have hit 1000 home runs....his stints in the service and all.

    It's more of a joke than old Briggs Stadium.

    Statistically, as spelled out in (baseball-reference.com) for parks that have been used for at least a couple of decades, and in spite of the brutal RF, Fenway Park is the  best hitters park in baseball history. This is due to
    1: Lack of Foul Territory
    2: Wall - a Doubles Haven - See Boggs, Barrett, Pesky, Stephens, etc.

    A few Parks of a shorter duration that were easier:

    Wrigley Field, Los Angeles - OLD PCL park used by Angels in early 60s

    Coors before the humidor balls were introduced


    And despite the RF which cost him a bunch of Hrs, Williams OPS Home/Road Splits : Home - 1.148 / Road - 1.082


    Also, rumor has it the LF Foul Line, listed at 315 Ft, is actually anywhere from 272 to 303.

    Hence the cliche A game is never over in Fenway Park

    Those in glass houses ....

    The 'wall' in right-field yankee stadium is not quite as high as left-field in Fenway.

    Yankee Stadium RF is so short that a fan caught a home run ball and threw it back  and the catcher caught it.

    Unless I'm missing it during the commercials, they don't have the wall on rollers so they can move it back when the visiting team bats.

    Among the 30 MLB stadiums, Yankee Stadium is No. 7 in home runs. Just behind Camden Yards and just ahead of Fenway.

    You do realize that the wall takes away, too, right?  Think about how many line drive shots would be gone in other parks.  That's what most of those dents are in the Monster. Or a ball still rising as it hits the top 10 feet of the wall.

    About half the balls that Jim Rice hit off that wall would have been way gone from any other park in MLB. That's partly why his doubles numbers are so high.

    But Yankee stadium's right field is honestly a joke.

    i think the difference is that the green monster extends out deeper into left center further.  37' (thanks steven) feet up is a lot harder when you hit it to left center.  Yankees right field porch really is just to breed HR's.  to think otherwise is kidding yourself.
    Fenway was built on an existing city block and had no choice but to have a short distance to the wall.  yankee stadium was built on top of a parking lot and kids playground/park so they could make the dimensions however they wanted.  they wanted a short porch.  the only reason that yankee stadium is not at the top of the list is that they can afford to spend $100MM per year just on pitching.  put some of the other HR park pitching staffs in pinstripes and see how fast they vault to the top.
    your turn.

    This is true (Correction: The wall is 37'); the Original YS was even shorter in RF (and down the LF line), and impossible elsewhere (From RCF to LF) However, Fenway is a BAvg (due to lack of foul territory) and Doubles (due to the wall & other old fashioned nooks & crannies) haven.

    The RF is brutal (except right down the line) for LH power hitters. The LF is unfair; it can be very easy to HR on a towering fly and you could hit a 500 ft line drive and get a single or double.
