Toronto pulls outfield fence… Homework given to Ryu Hyun-jin

The Toronto Blue Jays, to which Ryu Hyun-jin (36) belongs, advances the outfield fence of the Rogers Center, the home stadium.

CBS Sports reported on the 22nd (Korean time), “Toronto is adjusting the outfield fence of the Rogers Center, which is being remodeled,” and “It seems to be a more comfortable place for hitters.”

According to the media, the distance from home plate to the middle wall is reduced from 400 feet (122 m) to 397 feet (121 m). Left-middle moves the fence from 375 feet (114 m) to 366 feet (112 m), right-middle moves the fence from 375 feet (114 m) to 357 feet (109 m). 토토사이트

Instead of shortening the distance to the outfield fence, the height of the fence is planned to be increased. Adjust the height of the left and right fences where the bullpen is located from 10 feet (3 m) to 15 feet (4.5 m).

However, the fact that it becomes a more favorable condition for others remains unchanged. Rogers Center has previously been rated as a ‘batter-friendly’ park.

Due to the construction of the stadium, the distance to the right-middle fence has been shortened, making it a good environment for left-handed batters to aim for a home run.

Not good news for pitchers. For Ryu Hyun-jin, who is recovering from elbow surgery last season, the changed home stadium can be a ‘homework’.

Ryu Hyun-jin recorded 5 wins and 4 losses with an average ERA of 6.93 in 13 games at the Rogers Center. He hit 11 home runs as he pitched 61 innings.
