Honestly, I love almost everything about our (relatively) new park, with one HUGE exception: I think the outfield dimensions are an absolute joke. Most everyone else seems to feel the same way. We've all heard the Great American Small Park references and the hundreds of others.
I know the park is backed up right against the river and the basketball arena right next door. But is there any room to move the fences back just a little bit to make it more legit? I hate knowing that others think we play in a joke of a ballpark. We are the Cincinnati Reds with as much tradition as anyone and we shouldn't be settling for park with high school (middle school?) dimensions. I can't believe the people who constructed the stadium allowed this to happen. They should have went with the exact same dimensions of Riverfront -- and they at least thought of it because they went with 404 in straight away center. But the lines and power alleys are too short. Very, very dumb and I hope something can be done about it.
