Blue Jays To Move Fences In At Rogers Centre 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 24, 2023 1:26 pm

The Toronto Blue Jays are moving in the outfield fences at the Rogers Centre as part of ongoing renovations to the ballpark.

According to a TSN report, the fence distances will be changed for the 2023 season as follows:

-- The center field fence distance will be reduced from 400 feet to 397 feet. 

-- The left-center power alley fence will move in from 375 feet to 366 feet. 

-- Most substantially, the fence in the right-center power alley will come in from 375 feet all the way to 357 feet. 

Those changes will be offset by an increase in fence height of varying dimensions. 

According to Statcast, Rogers Centre over the last three seasons has played basically neutral when it comes to run-scoring levels.
