New York Mets manager Terry Collins told Mike Puma of the New York Post he would like Citi Field's fences moved in again.

The Mets previously adjusted the home run distance in the park when they moved the walls in after the 2011 season.

From the New York Post:

“I think it’s going to help us a little bit confidence-wise when you get in that batter’s box and say, ‘Hey, look, I can use the field and do some damage here,’ because that’s what a lot of guys in this lineup are paid to do, and that’s get big hits. I think it would be great for us ” Collins said.

Collins also acknowledged that though the shorter fences help the opposing team as well, but that the Mets "pitch pretty good in some [hitters’] parks."

This season, the Mets have hit 243 total home runs, 112 of which came at home, and 131 on the road. New York has played five more games on the road so far this year.
