SAN DIEGO – With the Padres playing their home opener Tuesday, the Dodgers will be the first team to hit in Petco Park since it was renovated over the off-season.
Long considered one of baseball’s most pitcher-friendly parks, Petco Park is not as cavernous as it used to be.
The wall that runs from right field to right center was brought in 11 feet. The wall in left-center was also moved in. The parts of right-center and left-center that were 402 feet away from home plate are now 391 and 390 feet away, respectively.
