What Are Your Ideal Ballpark Dimensions?

    So many people knock Citizen's Bank Park and Minute Maid Park for being "Bandboxes". So, what in your opinion makes a ballpark have ideal dimensions? What would your park look like? Do you yearn for the old days of the Polo Grounds or want to go back to the times of Ebbets? Share your ideas.

    Little League field with 200-foot fences then?

    Would that be Wrigley?

    I want the fences way in when I hit and way back when I'm in the field.
    There you go: mobile outfield fences.

    I'm a fan of the old Borchert Field, myself (on the left).
