Mets Tee Off At Field 7
Here is a video of what the players had to say about Field 7 yesterday, which were making some of them play and feel a little Ruthian to say the least.
David Wright, Daniel Murphy and Lucas Duda became the first players to test out the new dimensions on Field 7 which has been altered to match the new outfield dimensions at Citi Field.
Several of the balls landed between the new and old fences. Balls hit to those spots at Citi Field last season would likely have been outs or, at best, doubles. This year, they will be home runs.
“Today shows you there’s a big difference,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said, referring to “how many balls are laying behind that first fence.”
“It’s going to change the way these guys think when they’re at home plate,” Collins said. “This past year I saw many guys thinking they had to pull a ball to hit a homer.”
I hope this translates well in the real Citi Field.
