ITS JUST LIKE THE METS AT CITI FIELD THEY SHOULD MOVE THE FENCES IN

Marlins Park boasts some of the largest outfield dimensions of any stadium in the majors, so it’s no surprise that some of the team’s hitters would like to see the fences moved in. Count Logan Morrison among them.
Morrison has blasted five home runs in 158 plate appearances on the road this season compared to just one home run in 155 plate appearances at home. While he doesn’t blame his power outage solely on Marlins Park, he tells Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that it has played a part.
“It’s definitely a factor,” Morrison said of the Marlins’ huge ballpark. “And that translates into the average not being there, too. You drive balls to the wall and they get caught. Not only is it not a homer, it’s not a hit.”
Morrison is not alone among Marlins players who would like to see the team bring the fences in.
“I think that would make it fair,” Morrison said. “But it’s not my decision.”
