MLB Handicapping: Rockies raise fences at Coors Field

03.02.2016     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Colorado Rockies have decided to raise various portions of the fences at Coors Field.

"The goal is to raise the wall heights to make it potentially more playable and more fair — for pitchers," Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said. "We really don't know, exactly, the effect it is going to have. We are going to live it together, this year, and see what happens."

"I have thought about this for a long time," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "I thought it would eliminate some of the cheaper home runs that we see there. And if you could keep a ball in the park here or there, it could change some things."
