RFK Dimensions are WRONG.

The Post made a big story out of this, and it's interesting, no doubt.  However, what apparently seemed to happen is that they simply assembled the outfield wall panels such that the 380 foot gap markers were too close to straight away center.  They were moved back for last night's game.

Also interesting is that it is actually shorter to straight away center, not even 410'.

I would prefer to leave the fences alone.  The hitters will get used to it, and the pitchers are loving it.  It can really give us an advantage in attracting top flight free agent pitchers.
