According to Adam Rubin, the Mets will lowed the centerfield walls in Citi Field.
Currently, the wall stands 16 feet tall in front of the Home Run Apple.
Rubin writes that, “the height of Citi Field's center-field wall will be sliced in half, making the ballpark more homer-friendly.”
Does that only apply to the area in front of the apple? Because cutting the whole centerfield wall in half would make it about six feet tall in most areas.
What I assume is going to happen (don’t quote me on this), is that they will push the area in front of the apple back, so that there will still be a wall in front of the apple, but that the “home run area” will all be at the same level (the lower line).
Here’s a tweet from David Lennon: Mets are, in fact, lowering the cutout in front of the Apple at Citi Field, but may be more aesthetic move than home-run related.
I believe it will end up looking something like this…
