Media and weather company AccuWeather said the heavy winds and angle of the seating in the new $1.5 billion baseball park that opened this season could be major factors for why Yankee Stadium is being called “Coors East” by one analyst. Coors Field is the home park of the Colorado Rockies, where the high altitude leads to high-scoring games.

One ESPN columnist called the new Yankee park a “veritable wind tunnel”.

The Yankees were crushed on Saturday by Cleveland 22-4, during which the Indians hit six home runs. AccuWeather said winds at 15 to 20 miles per hour out of the west may have played a role in that game, but the new layout of the park also could be a factor.

“Although the field dimensions of the new stadium are exactly that of the old stadium, the shell of the new stadium is shaped differently, the company said in a statement. “AccuWeather.com meteorologists also estimate that the angle of the seating in the new stadium could have an effect on wind speed across the field.”

The company said the new stadium’s seating could allow winds to blow across the field with less restriction than at the old stadium, while the slope of the seating tiers could cause air to lift the ball in right field. AccuWeather sees that being an issue when winds are from the west and higher than 10 miles per hour.

And the other end of the baseball spectrum


Quote:
Citi Field, the new ballpark for the New York Mets, is poised to become MLB's new Grand Canyon. City Field is a vast, cool weather, sea-level stadium, and those factors will have a hugely negative impact on home runs.

Johan Santana and the rest of the Mets pitching staff will like the new park, but the Mets' front office should sign their power hitters now, before the word gets out. In spring 2009, baseball fans are going to get a live demonstration of what happens when a team sets out to design a pitcher's park, and overdoes it.

Balls carry MORE in warmer/hotter weather.
But it also depends on the wind direction. So far westerly winds have been a cause.


As for CitiField, their dimensions are ridiculous! Then on top of that their walls are too high. They have a mini green monster, which is further than Boston's.

But it is better to have a pitchers ballpark than a homerun park like Coors Field. Even the best pitchers have trouble in such a ballpark and can makes games and most seasons highly unpredictable.
