Sandy Alderson said it’s possible the organization may again look in to adjusting the outfield dimensions at Citi Field.
It’s worth noting, Alderson pointed out, that the Mets are among the league leaders in run production on the road.
“This isn’t the best hitter’s park, but, at the same time, while you’d expect the runs to be depressed at home, there is such a divergence from the results on the road it’s something we’ve been taking a look at and something we have to fix,” he said. “It’s not about home runs, it’s not about driving the ball to the fence, it’s something else.”
Former hitting coach Dave Hudgens spoke about the dimensions of the stadium on Tuesday, too. He mentioned that David Wright’s best place to hit balls, right-center field, is one of the deepest park of the parks.
“The stadium was not built with David [Wright] in mind,” Hudgens said.
