Pictures Of New Citi Field Dimensions and Blue Wall – Awesome!
The Mets officially announced Monday that they will move in portions of Citi Field’s outfield fence next season, lower the height of the wall in left field and paint the entire fence blue.
The changes will result in approximately 140 new seats, including roughly 100 in left-center field and 40 in an expanded Modell’s Clubhouse in right field.
The Mets plan to add an angled eight-foot wall spanning from left field to straightaway center in front of the existing 16-foot wall. The team will also construct similar eight-foot walls to shorten the gap in right-center and the “Mo Zone” in right. Using a projection model, the Mets determined that their new dimensions would have resulted in a total of 151 more home runs at Citi Field over the past three seasons.
“We decided to change the outfield wall from black to Mets blue, which many of our fans have wanted,” Jeff Wilpon said.
“You don’t want the ballpark to be a distraction,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “And I really do believe a ballpark like ours has a more dramatic impact on the home team than on the visitors.”
This looks absolutely awesome, I love the blue walls. I can’t wait to check it out in person next season.
Good job by Alderson and the owners on this.
