Marlins Park features some of the largest outfield dimensions in the major leagues and has already held in a number of shots off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton, among other big-league sluggers, that would have been home runs in other stadiums.
But the Fish aren’t tempted to make any changes.
Here’s Marlins president David Samson, addressing the topic Tuesday in a meeting with the media that included Tom D’Angelo of the Palm Beach Post:
“We want it to be pitcher friendly, but fair to hitters who get all of it,” Samson said.
“No cheapies. If you get it, we want it to go. We have no reason to think about doing anything with the fences. The park is playing fair.”
The Marlins are only 16 home games into the park’s debut season. We’ll see if Samson’s attitude changes.
