A New Strangest Stadium: The Alamodome

Earlier this year, I did a blog post about the strangest stadiums ever used in baseball.

There is now another one to add to the list: The Alamodome in San Antonio, which will play host to exhibition games between Texas and San Diego next spring.

What’s so weird about that? Well, the Alamodome was created with basketball and football in mind, not baseball, so the dimensions will be weird. The RF line will only be 280 feet, center will be 395, and left will be 340. The right field fence will be 16-feet tall to make sure there aren’t as many cheap home runs.
