I want to start off by saying I love all baseball fields.
I do not discriminate. I don’t care if it’s layered with grass or turf, well-manicured or full of geese poop, in the middle of a city with a warehouse as a left-field wall (shoutout to Carteret, NJ), or with a skyline of the most beautiful mountains we’ve ever seen. I love a good baseball field. Obviously some are more aesthetically pleasing than others, but you know what they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
But this shot of BYU’s field is absolutely majestic.
Maybe the best part about this view is that it makes it look like the mountains are literally right behind the outfield wall. You don’t even realize that those mountains (Specifically what I believe is known as ”Y Mountain”, see below) are actually 12,555 feet from home plate. What an absolute NUKE that would be. Get Barry Bonds in there to recreate this homer from the right side, ASAP. It wen’t that exact distance anyway, maybe farther.
Those 40 players and 7 coaches on BYU’s roster could be the luckiest people on the planet. They get to look at that view day in and day out. I’m jealous. I want to go visit BYU and the state of Utah just to see this field. Who knows, maybe there’s more fields with views like this out West that someone from New Jersey like me can’t even fathom to see. I want to see more.
Random thought that just hit me. Is there a yearly flip calendar out there with just beautiful baseball fields? If so, someone DM me the link to buy. I want those plastered all over my house. If not, I think I just came up with an amazing marketing campaign. Who’s with me?
I started by saying I love all baseball fields. Place one on Twitter and @ us. I wanna see it and show it some love.
