  • Minute Maid Park has the deepest outfield walls in MLB at 435 ft.
  • Fenway Park's outfield walls are the closest at 390 ft.

One of the most interesting differences between Major League Baseball and other professional sports is that in MLB, teams get to choose how their home field will be shaped. While there always has to be 90 ft between the bases and the distance between the pitcher’s mound and home plate must be 60.6 ft, the depth and height of outfield walls is left up to the teams to decide.

A home run on one field may just be a double on another, so players must be able to adapt to the different shapes, heights, and measurements of fields across the league.

So, which MLB ballpark has the deepest center field (straightaway) outfield walls?
