Webmaster's game assessment

Strong winds blowing from left

Field orientation has the pitcher pitching from facing southwest making right field the sun field on (the typical) clear evenings. Though the dimensions of the ballpark are not unusually large, home runs tend to be somewhat rarer at Lewis & Clark. One reason is the strong northerly winds that frequenly blow in from left field.

Note the two white lines. The left one is the foul line (lined up with pole).
The right line is marks the edge of play with tarp and vehicle entrance.

"No Man's Land"

One significant part of the ground rules of the ballpark deal with the "no man's land" near the right field foul pole. There is a large section to the right of the pole, beyond the visitor's bullpen area, that serves as storage for the tarp and and vehicle entrance for various promotions. The end of the field of play is marked by a second white line that matches up to the warning track along the outfield fence and foul teritory right of the first base line.
