    Anybody know if this stadium plays as a hitter or pitchers park?

    i know this was yesterday, but any data would be useless

    looking at the dimensions it appears a little on the shorter side but then those pictures seem to indicate a pretty liberal foul territory – if I were to guess, I’d imagine pull hitters would have slightly higher HR equity but a greater chance of fouling out

    honestly though that baseless guess is pretty meaningless, it’s a single game and not played on a mountain top so anything could happen and you’d be very unlikely to predict based on park factor

    The ball does not travel well here. Far too big a yard for the current college conditions. They built it the wrong direction so the ball is typically flying right into the prevailing wind during baseball season.

    woah, my random guess was pretty far off – 3rd highest is pretty deceptive though in my opinion, I actually had googled elevation originally because I wasn’t sure how much it was on the plateu before the rockies start and at 1,000 feet it’s not that much of a factor – just seems more relevant because most parks are at sea level but when you factor it’s 1/5th the elevation of coors, you begin to understand the nuance between cardinal and ordinal rankings
