Yesterday I had the chance to check out the new left field wall at Citizen’s Bank Ballpark – you can check out the photos. Construction is coming along nicely and there is a noticeable difference in the depth of left field. I just hope the Phils know what they’re doing here. Montgomery announced that it would shave off 22 home runs, but only if at least 50% of those come from the visitors tally will the move be a success. If you remember David Bell’s game winning home run last season during a BPS, that will be a measly can of corn next season. We’ll have to track homers from each game and see how the new wall holds up. Still, I think the main reason for the face lift is to make the park more attractive to free agent pitchers. John Smoltz was always bad mouthing the place, so hopefully this should shut him up for a while.
