Re: Should the Reds move the fences back?
I would be in favor of it since the park is such a massive home run hitting park. I think in its first three seasons combined the home run index is around 114 or so, even though actual run scoring is slightly below average. The problem to me in actually moving the fences back, however, is the structural design of the park. I'm not an engineer so I'm most likely wrong here, but given the structure of the park it would appear to be a difficult task to move the fences back in most areas except for possibly the small bullpen crevices.
