DateQuestionAnswer
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you ever spend time thinking about the different eras in ballpark design and what they mean/meant in the game's evolution? Any thoughts you wouldn't mind sharing? Favorite ballparks from the various eras?
(BL from Bozeman)
All the time. There are a few that would have been really interesting to watch a game or two in. The tiny, humped Baker Bowl -- even back in 1933, when no one had heard of park effects, people were saying the Cubs were foolish to deal for Chuck Klein and expect anything like the same production away from that park (and they were right). The U-shaped Polo Grounds. Griffith Stadium with those odd angles in center because they couldn't get the last homeowner to sell. Since we still don't have all the H/R splits from back then (keep it up, Retrosheet, and thank you!) we still don't have a full appreciation of just how much the stats of that time were affected by the parks, but of course they were.
