The earlier dimensions at Camden Yards had been 333 ft to left area, 364 to left-center and 410 to heart. Now, the wall goes from 333 out to 384, then throughout to 398. It then juts in a bit to 376 to accommodate the Baltimore bullpen earlier than reaching 410 in heart.
The top of the wall was raised from 7 to 13 ft.
“I just looked at it for the first time. It’s large,” Orioles slugger Trey Mancini said before the game. “It was a little more jaw-dropping than I thought.”
