Comerica and PetCo Parks are both pitchers' parks - the hitters have everything else.

The ballpark formerly known as Enron is a hitter's park.

Busch Stadium used to be a pitcher's park well over a decade ago. Then they moved the fences in.

oakland is a pitcher's park


fenway is interesting. it is a hitter's park, but its not a power hitter's park. it robs more hitters of homeruns that most people think.

I'm surprised there's not a higher correlation between hitter's parks and the distance to the nearest BALCO supplier. Maybe they do mail-order too?
