In BaseHit, each team has its own stadium where they play their home games. You can easily view the details of a team's stadium from their homepage.
The Stadium Model
Every stadium in the game is designed with specific measurements and features that affect gameplay. Here are the key elements:
- The distance from the foul lines to center field is measured in feet (1/3 of a meter).
- Down the left and right field lines, the distance ranges from 300' to 360' (average is 330').
- The distance to center field ranges from 380' to 440' (average is 410').
- Each stadium has walls of varying heights in left field (LF), center field (CF), and right field (RF).
- The height of these walls can be adjusted between 3' and 40' (average is 8').
- Larger stadiums with greater wall distances and heights result in fewer home runs but more triples and doubles.
- There are five options for the size of the foul territory: tiny, small, average, medium, and huge.
- A larger foul territory increases the chances of foul balls being caught for outs.
- The playing surface can be either grass or turf.
- Turf infields allow ground balls to travel faster, making it harder for infielders to make plays.
- Grass infields slow down ground balls slightly, giving infielders a better chance to field them.
You have the option to edit the stadium for each team you own, with some restrictions.
- Active teams (teams in a league) can only edit their stadiums during the preseason.
- Some leagues may not allow stadium changes, and you won't see the "Edit Stadium" option during the preseason in those cases.
