Re: Jacoby Ellsbury?
Actually, it's the reverse.
Parks with small outfields supress BA, because the outfielders have less ground to cover, making it harder for line drives to fall in. Most of the parks out west are BA hitters dreams, as flares drop into the vast outfield spaces regularly.
The only advantage Pegan has between the parks in which they play is foul territory, but that's a very small advantage.
And Pegan wasn't a regular in 2009. Only 88 games.
