'Little League park:' Rangers manager takes shot at Yankee Stadium dimensions

USATSI

The Rangers and Yankees divided a doubleheader on Sunday. It moved the Yankees to 19-8 on the season, sufficient for top place in the AL East. The Rangers transferred to 11-15, however they’ve really won 5 of their last 6. And the only loss in there remained in Sunday’s matinee, which ended on a Gleyber Torres walk-off crowning achievement — as seen here: 

As we understand, the right-field deck in Yankee Stadium is infamously brief, though it’s not as extreme entering into the spaces and most likely not almost as overstated as non-Yankee fan public belief. Still, the credibility continues. Just ask Rangers supervisor Chris Woodward: 

Yep, there it is. 🔥🔥🔥. A Little League park! That’ll definitely get the headings. It made this one. Of course, there’s a thing called Statcast out there determining whatever nowadays and moving down to the space in Yankee Stadium — as kept in mind earlier — it isn’t almost that bad. Torres’ shot wasn’t all the method to the measurement, however the right-center space is 385 which’s much deeper than the typical ballpark. 

And as pointed out in the above tweet, Torres’ crowning achievement leaves the backyard in 26 of the 30 MLB ballparks. Like I stated, we have tools that determine anything in 2022. 

Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone was inquired about the remark and had a quite amusing response. 

It’s real! You can’t particularly get to 99 percent till 100. If Torres’ fly ball would’ve been an out in 29 of the 30 parks, that’s 96.667 percent. 

Also funny in all of this is the Rangers got on the board with this Eli White crowning achievement in the 2nd video game of the doubleheader. 

That one clocked in at 342 feet and according to the readily available metrics, would be a crowning achievement in simply 2 of the 30 MLB ballparks. 

This a great time to state that throughout the course of a nine-inning video game, both groups have the ability to make the most of the ballpark measurements an equivalent variety of times. 

Then once again, it’s quite amusing to see a supervisor call an opposing ballpark “Little League” and witness the occurring fallout. Go nuts, everybody.
