So yeah, PNC Park is getting new grass, new dirt, a new warning track, a new baseline alignment, new -- wait, what?
According to Coonelly, the design of the infield will be modified to include
unique baselines and first- and third- base and home-plate cutouts, which will
provide both functional and aesthetic improvements to the layout.
"Unique baselines?" I thought that kind of thing was set by the rules. What's going to be new about it? Are guys who hit a single going to cross the mound and head for second?
