I hate Shippett Stadium

SDS

It sucks playing there. It absolutely sucks. You don’t have to hit the ball well for it to be a home run there because of the high altitude and bandbox dimensions all around. It’s just not fun at all, and it’s not even a visually interesting stadium in any way. And all of this is compounded by the fact that over 50% of games are played there. It’s just so frustrating because there’s nothing you can do about it - you have to rely on your opponent missing the ball instead of you making bad pitches.

At least the other high altitude stadiums are deep with somewhat interesting visuals. I’d much rather play at any of them than Shippett.

SDS

Yea but my prestige progress loves it.

Barnes and laughing mountain are homerun fest also. But honestly it’s the game, it’s homerun or nothing. It’s what we have to deal with

SDS

I don’t understand why any competitive player would pick that stadium. Game already has flukes and now you want cheap home runs on top of it?

I would think they would want a more neutral park where it really makes a difference if you are squaring pitches up more and out pitching them.

I am sorry this happened to you

I didn't believe the hype until I recently played a BR game there...the impact is definitely legit. There were maybe 2-3 lead changes, 5-6 HR, and the final score was like 11-9 or something. Crazy...Lol

Never happened in real life before

Love shippett. The better player comes out on top 99 percent of the time.

Yep. Button mashers love it. Cerebral pitching means nothing here.

If you hate Shippett wait until you play at Laughing Mountain. Coors like elevation and big dimensions.

Like I said though, I’d rather play at laughing mountain than Shippett because of the big dimensions and it’s also just more visually appealing. Shippett is literally just a field with stands behind it.

Good hitters like it because they’ll somewhat be properly rewarded unlike 99% of other stadiums, but I can understand how the “good pitchers” hate it

Play at a “neutral park” to hit that perfect perfect flyball with 110 power that flies out before the warning track

True I agree with you there. Its just even higher evaluation balls seem to fly out of there everytime I play.

While there doesn't seem to be too many "neutral" parks, playing in a big one is the only way to quell the boring homer-fest. Personally, I like Forbes for that very reason; someone might send one 420 feet, but a fast outfielder can run it down if there's enough loft.

There are still some home runs (very few from me), but Forbes and Griffith are about the only places where pitching and defense seem to matter. I realize I'm in the minority here and in the real world (the best real game I've ever seen ended with my A's winning 1-0 on a Mike Gallego suicide squeeze, sometime in the late 80's), but can't beat a low-scoring game filled with high-leverage situations.

So, there are always home games...

At least you actually have to earn your HRs. Shippett was ruined for me when I hit a HR with Juan Pierre and didn’t even have good PCI on it. So yeah you might hit more tanks but your opponent is also going to get a lot of cheap HRs too.
