Your Ideal MLB Ballpark Outfield

34 posts in this topic

Every MLB Ballpark is relatively unique in it's own way. What I was wonder is if you could take right, center, and left field elements from any of the 30 ballparks to create the perfect outfield what would they be? For me, the choices would be:

 

Right Field:

The Warehouse (Orioles Park at Camden Yards)-

Center Field:

No longer exists, but The Hill (Minute Maid Park)-

Left Field:

Western Metal Supply Co. Building (Petco Park)

Talking just elements and not the field dimensions it'd create:

 

Left Field - Green Monster, Fenway

Center Field - Citi Field

(Doesn't need be the Big Apple specifically, just something fun and quirky to celebrate a home run)

 

Right Field - Globe Life Park at Arlington

(LOVE the retro-style double deck.)

Center: The Roberto Clemente Bridge at PNC Park.

Right: No question. McCovey Cove at Pac Bell Park. (Let's just pretend the Clemente Bridge can stretch all the way to Oakland or Alameda...)

This would be mine too, I would also have the lowest attendance as well with this set up.

Sorry, me being a Houstonian I was like Taj doesn't sound right. It's TAL's Hill.

I do not know where I found this or who made it, but thought it fit in with this thread very nicely. It's a couple of years old but I think it's fascinating.

While it's quirky it's not exactly more aesthetically than other right fields. Mount Davis is an eye sore though and I'm not surprised it's not on his list
