Best Hitters Park?

Here is a look at the 14 ballparks in the South Atlantic League and the amount of home runs hit…

Asheville (McCormick Field): 15 for/14 against – 29 total (20 games)

Augusta (Lake Olmstead Stadium) – 8 for/6 against – 14 total (17 games)

Charleston (Joe Riley Jr. Ballpark) – 7 for/6 against – 13 total (20 games)

Delmarva (Perdue Stadium) – 5 for/12 against – 17 total (16 games)

Greensboro (NewBridge Bank Park) – 26 for/21 against – 47 total (21 games)

Greenville (Fluor Field at the West End) - 14 for/14 against – 28 total (20 games)

Hagerstown (Municipal Stadium) – 6 for/17 against – 23 total (20 games)

Hickory (L.P. Frans Stadium – 18 for/12 against – 30 total (16 games)

Kannapolis (Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium) – 13 for/8 against – 21 total (21 games)

Lakewood (FirstEnergy Park) – 3 for/4 against – 7 total (16 games)

Lexington (Applebee’s Park) – 13 for/15 against – 28 total (17 games)

Rome (State Mutual Stadium) – 2 for/6 against - 8 total (15 games)

Savannah (Grayson Stadium) – 5 for/10 against – 15 total (20 games)

West Virginia (Appalachian Power Park) – 7 for/15 against – 22 total (16 games)

It seems like its fair to say that NewBridge Bank Park is probably the best hitters park in the league.  No doubt that McCormick Field (Asheville) is up there as well.  Greenville and Hickory also are hitters parks. 

Perdue Stadium is known as a tough park to hit the long ball in.  The Shorebirds have hit just five.  How about FirstEnergy Park (Lakewood)? Just seven homers in 16 games.
