Baseball and a Cuppa

Box office entrance to Dunkin’ Donuts Park, Apr-2017.

Quick Facts: Rating: 4 baseballs
There is a lot of eye candy at this new park just north of I-84 in downtown Hartford. There is even a Dunkin’ Donuts stand. But it’s a very strange facility, thanks to the dimensions.

The developers had to squeeze the park into a couple of city blocks, and that made for very short dimensions, especially in right field. The lower deck of outfield seats in right is protected by a mesh screen that actually keeps balls in play, preventing cheap home runs.

Other dimensions are rather short here as well, although center field is a normal distance from the plate. The result has been a surfeit of cheap home runs in the park’s early going.
