Six Standout Ballpark Features

The Green Monster: Standing at 37 feet and two inches in Fenway Park’s outfield lies the Green Monster, a definite sight to see in Boston. Due to its size and popularity with right-handed hitters, the large wall is known as a Monster, but interestingly enough it was not painted green until 1947.

Miami Marlins Home Run Statue: With the new ballpark in 2012 came a new home run statue. The piece of art, which was budgeted at $2.5 million, is activated when the team hits a home run. It sits 73 feet over center field and features a marlin jumping in and out of the "water" on a track that runs along the sculpture.

Miller Park Home Run Slide: It’s an exciting time whenever the Brewers hit a home run, not only because the players round the bases, but also because Milwaukee’s mascot, Bernie Brewer, goes down the Miller Park Home Run Slide! The slide is featured in the left field corner and when Bernie goes down, one cannot help but smile!

Cincinnati’s Smokestacks: In the Great American Ballpark right field stands two smokestacks, which are meant to represent the steamboats that were common on the Ohio River in the nineteenth century. These smokestacks launch fireworks for home runs and wins and blow fire down the stacks for each Reds home run! So cool!

The Diamondbacks Pool: In right-center of Chase field lies a pool and spa that sits four feet above ground. What better way to watch incredible baseball in 110-degree summer days than in a pool, the only one in the Majors! It can be rented out to fans or for corporate events and even has a lifeguard!

The Wrigley Ivy Wall: The Ivy was added to Wrigley Field in 1937 and has been an incredible addition to the Cubs’ ballpark ever since.
