The fences at Citifield will be brought in next season.
After three seasons the Mets will bring in the fences at Citifield. The Mets have always stressed pitching and defense with only a few major sluggers in their history. Shea Stadium was always a pitchers park, but with the open outfield balls would often carry. I have seen so many long drives fall short in Citifield, so hopefully the shorter fences will help David Wright and Jason Bay. On the other hand, the shorter fences will help the visiting team.
