A Little Off The Top Please
The Daily News is reporting that Citi Field is getting a little trim, particularly in center field.
The height of Citi Field’s center-field wall will be sliced in half, making the ballpark more homer-friendly, the Daily News has learned.
Last season, the wall measured 16 feet in front of the sparsely used Home Run Apple. Now, with the second level of padding being removed, it will measure eight feet in the middle of the outfield.
Still, as the Daily News exclusively reported in September, the stadium’s spacious dimensions won’t be altered.
The Mets hit 95 homers last season, by far the fewest in the majors. San Francisco ranked 29th with 122.
This should help a little and at least we’ll get to see that shiny new apple a little more next season.
