New York Weather at Citi Field
| ||Click on the banner to the left to find out if the latest New York weather forecast will affect the baseball score. Or learn how you should dress for today’s NY Mets game at Citi Field, New York. Citi Field, Queens, New York, is the new home of the New York Mets since 2009. Citi Field is a large open air stadium that favours pitchers. It was build just beyond the outfield fence of the stadium it replaced − Shea Stadium. |
The keys to the design of Citi Field were improved amenities and fan comfort (extra leg room and aisle space). The ballpark holds 15,000 fewer fans than Shea Stadium.
Winds in the park vary widely from day to day, but the conditions rarely offset the pitching advantage the park provides. The field is asymmetrical, 335 feet to the orange-colored left field foul pole but only 330 to the one in right. The 415-foot right-center power alley is deeper than dead center (408). The outfield fences are also high down the lines.
As a hitter’s ballpark, ESPN ranks Fenway Park #25. In 2010, Citi Field surrendered a total of 7.60 runs per game for both teams (3rd lowest in MLB). Coors Field surrendered the most runs (10.59).
