The AL East Is Filled With Mighty Beasts

With its quirky and unique ballparks, baseballs tend to fly out of American League East stadiums. Fenway Park with its 37-foot Green Monster in left field and nooks and crannys all over the smallest playing area in the Major Leagues, is the oddest ballpark in the Major Leagues.

The right field porches in Yankee Stadium and Oriole Park at Camden Yards are inviting targets to left-handed power hitters, while when the roof is closed at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, it turns into a launching pad.

During the 2016 season, Boston led the league in hits (1598) and runs (878), while Baltimore’s 253 home runs were an AL best.
