Report: Mets will change Citi Field's dimensions during offseason

Friday September 26th, 2014

Citi Field, home of the The New York Mets, is expected to have changes to its dimensions in right field this offseason, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

Exact measurements have not been decided, but it will be the second time the Mets have altered the stadium since it opened in 2009. The changes this time are expected to be smaller than the 2011 modifications.

Rubin detailed the 2011 changes:

Between the 2011 and '12 seasons, the Mets made radical adjustments to the stadium's dimensions -- reducing the "Mo's Zone" nook in right field, creating a "Party City Deck" in left field by building an eight-foot wall in front of the existing "Great Wall of Flushing," and trimming the dimensions in right-center.

Citi Field moved from 28th in total home runs in 2011 to 12th in home runs in 2012 following the renovations. This season the stadium ranks 17th in home runs.
