Orioles Moving Back Left Field Wall At Camden Yards 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jan 13, 2022 1:52 pm

The Baltimore Orioles are moving the wall in left field back as much as 30 feet at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

\"For the start of the 2022 season, the distance from home plate to the left field wall will be pushed back as much as 30 feet, in varying increments at different points in the wall, and the height will raise approximately 5 feet,\" the club said in an email to fans whose seats would be affected.

\"By pushing back the left field wall, we\'ve created a playing field that is fair for both pitchers and hitters.\"

Baltimore hit 122 home runs at home last year and 73 on the road. Orioles pitchers allowed 155 homers at home, compared with just 103 on the road.
